Local Faces - Joseph Priestley

No prizes for guessing who this is, or which century he lived in. Joseph Priestley was born at Fieldhead, Birstall and attended Batley Grammar School.
I've just been looking at the Priestley Society website it's amazing how much more he discovered than oxygen, and there's a photograph there of this image on the Tapestry.

The piece was worked by Denise Teed using handmade felt with machine embroidery.
