Philip Webb’s plans for Red House are works of art

From 18 April 11am - 5pm

Red House was architect Philip Webb's first commission and on the centenary of his death on 17 April 1915 we are opening an exhibition of his personal artefacts. As well as a display of his plans of Red House you can see the tools of his trade, clues as to what he enjoyed doing in his spare time, a beautiful gift from his friend William Morris plus an object that will surprise you.
