Sorry, no photos, not sure what information you require.
Below a description of the Hall in 1878, also, the grounds were used as a POW camp, WW2.

1909. This relates to Ledsham Estate. Terrible copy but you might see something. Badgers Rake is also given a mention but I can't read it.

You could also try this gentleman. Ian Boumphrey. He has an amazing amount of photographs, and is very helpful.
Good luck.

The 1896 directory shows him at the Oaks.
I was reading this morning and I will find it again, Mrs Haigh got in to trouble for trying to build something on to Ledsham Hall without permission, anyway, I'll find it again and put it up.
