Langton Matravers Historical Society
Ppresents a talk in the Village Hall by Jessica Sutcliffe on the subject of ‘Helen Muspratt: Photographer’ who became very well known in Swanage. A lifelong communist, member of the Cambridge intellectual milieu of the 1930s, and a working mother at a time when such a role was unusual for women of her class. She was also a pioneering photographer, creating an extraordinary body of work in many different styles and genres. Following Helen’s death in 2001, her daughter, Jessica Sutcliffe, became increasingly aware of her mother’s importance in the history of twentieth century photography and the talk will give a fascinating insight into an important artist.

The Purbeck Gazette is a free monthly magazine covering local news, events, business, arts, entertainment, sport, health, environment and just about everything else. Every month, we print 20,000 copies (80 pages, A4) - and they all go! We also publish the entire magazine on this website in electronic format (see Latest Issue).


The magazine is widely read throughout south Dorset; research suggests that although 20,000 copies are printed, readership is in fact in the order of 50,000. That's a lot of people, and includes the working resident community, the retired population, the second-home owners and a huge number of tourists, many of whom visit all year round.

Want to be kept up to date with the latest news and much more? Then why not:
