Happy Birthday Lady Diana

Today is the anniversary of the birth of Lady Diana St John nee Spencer, born on 24th March 1734. Lady Diana was a very talented artist who, after her divorce from Frederick St John, 2nd Viscount Bolingbroke, supported herself creating designs for Wedgwood pottery, some of which are still in use today. Some of her designs were inspired by the country scenes she saw around Lydiard Park and the Blue Closet in Lydiard House is dedicated to her art.
