One Show spotlight on Stonyhurst College

STONYHURST College is set to appear on national television today as part of a feature on a pioneering photographer from Hurst Green.

Roger Fenton, who is famed for his photographs taken during the Crimean War in the 19th century, took pictures of the college during his life including three sets of 50 photographs between 1858 and 1859.

TV crews from The One Show shot at the 400-year-old school on November 22 and restaged Fenton’s images and compared them to the originals.

Included in the locations were ‘The Plunge’, the country’s first indoor swimming pool, the refectory which dates back to the 17th century and the Jesuit Garden.

Photographer Giles Duley, who lost three limbs in an explosion in Afghanistan in 2011,led the project and said Fenton inspired him to take up the profession.
