This is the first painting of the Pepperpot Triptych which now hangs in the Peoples Hall Sedbergh.
It is believed locally that the Pepperpot was built as an isolation house for Mr Taylor’s daughter. Anne is thought to have developed Tuberculosis at the age of 18 and, rather than send his daughter away to live in a sanatorium, Mr Taylor built Pepperpot. This allowed Anne to live close to her family without contaminating them. Anne is believed to have survived for just three years before dying at the age of 21.
