Peter O’Toole, the acclaimed actor who passed away in December 2013, was a tenant of one of the properties in the Park at Althorp, and was a keen member of the Althorp XI cricket team for several years.

He opened the batting, fielded in the slips, and liked to bowl two overs just before lunch. In his panama, light blue jacket, and cravat, he added old school elegance to every match he played in.

The thoughts of all at Althorp who knew this wonderful man are with his family.
