Art and collections

The cupboards in the Winter Dining Room at Greenway are filled with collections

Peek into Greenway's cabinet of curiosities 

We've been searching the collection at Greenway for things that are usually hidden away, and each month are bringing them into focus. In the Winter Dining Room the month's items will form the centre of a display in a 'cabinet of curiosities' and will feature here on the website along with a writing prompt.
