Kelmscott and Morris: Past, Present and Future

2017 HLF CompactThe £6 million project offers us all an exceptional opportunity to broaden the appeal of Kelmscott Manor by explaining the site’s significance and sharing widely the excitement that it engendered in William Morris.  History, art, architecture, archaeology and ancient landscapes are the academic disciplines at the heart of our Society. These were the inspiration for Morris at Kelmscott; the house and its surroundings were pivotal in his articulation and promotion of the principles that underlie modern conservation practice. Scheme design and development has already begun and should be completed within the next 12 months.  

Having secured a major grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund, we aim to raise the sum of £1.5 million to complete this £6 million project.
