Kelmscott Manor Campaign

About the project

2017 HLF Compact

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.
