The Save Chesterton art exhibition has been launched.

More than 150 guests turned out to a private viewing of a “Save Chesterton” Art Exhibition in Leamington.

Over 25 local artists have put on display their drawings, paintings, photographs and sculptures of iconic Chesterton Windmill including a 20:1 scale model.

Campaigners say that Stratford District Council’s plan to build a new town at Gaydon/Lighthorne Heath will forever despoil the rural view from the 380-year-old Windmill and destroy its south-westerly aspect. More than 2,000 people have signed a Government e-petition against the development. The exhibition at the Arts Trail Gallery in Regents Court, Leamington, opened on Tuesday January 6 and is scheduled to last all month.
