Sir Michael Leighton’s On the Marches

Sir Michael Leighton’s latest book of poems, On the Marches, produced by YouCaxton and edited by Mike Willmott of Shrewsbury Words (descendent of the great John Wilmot Earl of Rochester and a poet himself ) was launched recently at Loton Park, the family home near the Breidden Hills in West Shropshire. The poems are in the form of a collection of responses to the Shropshire countryside which Sir Michael  loves. The launch was fascinating and YouCaxton were there in full tog, chatting up the handmaids – or possibly the footmen.
