Her private life was considered scandalous, living with a married man for 24 years and being shunned by her family and society as a result.

Lesley Smith is curator at Tutbury Castle in Staffordshire. This portrayal was commissioned by the George Eliot Fellowship to mark her 200th birthday in 2019. Now is the chance to meet George Eliot and find out more about this extraordinary woman who had links with Lichfield.
