Kelmscott and Morris: Past, Present and Future

£1 million is needed to complete our £6 million programme of improvements and complete the project by 16th May 2021 (150 years to the day Morris’s first discovered Kelmscott Manor).

Any donations help, no matter how small!

About the project

We have now raised over £5 million towards the £5.5 million Kelmscott Manor project cost.  By conserving the historic buildings and developing the experience we will ensure that the Manor continues to be a place of inspiration, where Morris’s achievements and ideas can be explored creatively today and in the future.

We need your help to secure the remaining ‘match funding’ required.
