Mr Morris

Last week Ma and I travelled up to the very opposite end of the Victoria line to Walthamstow and the William Morris Gallery. A grand townhouse set in Lloyd Park, the gallery is in the building Morris lived in as a teenager and today hosts a wealth of his Arts and Crafts work from early drawings, to furniture, to fabrics, to ceramic tiles. Mum has seen more of his work in situ at Red House and Standen, but this free-of-charge gallery is a gem in London. Walthamstow itself was full of surprises for me: historic churches and cottages nestled into the north London suburb. All well worth a visit!
