Latest from William Morris Gallery

Short update on WMG re-building following site visit this week: 
the stripping out and refurbishing of the main historic house is virtually complete (including unplanned but very valuable re-roofing) and the fit-out is beginning .  Right now the new-decorated rooms are empty and offer a wonderful feeling of space which will sadly but inevitably go when the exhibits pile in.

Two most significant improvements  -  the lift

and the basement store

The Gallery will re-open at the end of July, even if the cafe is not quite completed.  Expect a transformation.
