Leicestershire's forgotten naval hero - Frank Abney Hastings... Maurice Abney Hastings at the exhibition about his adventurer forefather Frank Abney Hastings, at Ashby Museum, North Street, Ashby.

Will Johnston has provided us with these fantastic shots of us at the exhibition. See more of Will’s photography at www.willjohnstonphotography.com
