After the Great War came the greatest of gifts. Scafell Pike and 12 other Lakeland summits were given to the National Trust in the years after peace was declared, becoming Britain’s most spectacular and unique memorial to those lost in World War One.
Some of William Blake’s greatest works from poetry to painting will be displayed at Petworth in West Sussex, including paintings commissioned by the Wyndham family, and rare hand-coloured etchings of Blake’s illustrated epic poem Milton.
