Art and collections

The Derek Hill Collection 

We're home to a collection of 20th-century art, including works by L.S. Lowry, Barbara Hepworth and Graham Sutherland. They were gifted to us by the artist Derek Hill, in memory of a long friendship with last owner Maud Russell. You can see many of these works in the Morning Room. There are also smaller, focused displays in the West Corridor.
