Hugh Cecil Lowther, 5th Earl of Lonsdale, Master of the Quorn Hunt, 1893-1898

Passing the Farley Way, Loughborough Road junction in Quorn one can hardly help but notice the Care UK care home. The home opened in 2020 and was named ‘Lonsdale Mews’ following a competition that was won by the Quorn Women’s Institute. The name is derived from one-time Master of Quorn Hunt the 5th Earl of Lonsdale. Dennis Marchant looked at what is known about the Earl and his time in Quorn.

The article titled ‘Hugh Cecil Lowther, 5th Earl of Lonsdale,’ appeared in the June 2020 edition of The Quorndon Village Life magazine. Further information from a Quorn resident regarding Soar House and the 1923 etching of Hugh Lowther, found hanging in a home in Freehold Street were received post publication and have now been incorporated.
