So… I really love the Pre-Raphaelites. I wrote my dissertation on Lizzie Sidall and Ive always loved William Morris ans his ideas about craftsmanship. So I’ve been wanting to visit William Morris’s Red House for a while now. When I went yesterday I seemed like a good idea to take the knitted Pre-Raphaelites with me.
William and Jane had a good look around the house. This is the Wedding mural that they are both painted into.
The lovely Arts & Crafts stairway… very medieval!
Admiring the wall paper! Jane looks happy with it.
…. And the garden, which was beautiful.
The aspect from the front.. All the gang appreciated it.
… and the well!
I showed the tour guide, Steve, who got a few colleagues to come and see them. Then he asked, would I show then to Robynn, the House manager who was working in the shop. So they came out again.. on the counter.
She was very happy to see them all.
It was a really lovely day out & well worth a visit. More at: http://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/red-house
