Picture specialists from the international auction house Bonhams paid a visit to Garstang as part of its annual Masterpiece Month.

The popular event has unearthed many treasures over the years and visited Garstang Golf Club to see what it could find.

Bonhams Director of Paintings, Caroline Oliphant said: “Masterpiece Month is always exciting because we never know what we’re going to find. Not surprisingly, perhaps, there is always a rich vein of work by leading British artists such as Graham Sutherland, John Piper, Barbara Hepworth and William Nicholson. We also see paintings from all over the world.”
