Laxton Hall – Documentary photography by Czesław Siegieda

Documentary photographer Czesław Siegieda recorded life in a Polish community in England from 1970 to the 1980s. Laxton Hall is a Grade II* listed building located between Laxton and Corby, Northamptonshire and is a residential care home for the Polish community.

Since the 1970s, Corpus Christi events have been held at Laxton Hall where a mass usually takes place in the afternoon and then followed by a procession in the grounds. These annual gatherings had not only a religious significance, but were also important socially for Poles in England.
