Munstead Wood Exhibition at Haslemere Museum, Tuesday to Saturdays, 1-22 July.

We are looking forward to sharing a little more of why Munstead Wood is so important in terms of its' architectural, horticultural and Surrey history.

This small exhibition has been put together by the Munstead Wood Curator and wider property team to explain what remains of the Arts and Crafts house and garden, which was a creative collaboration between Gertrude Jekyll and her young architect friend Edwin Lutyens, at the beginning of his career.

The exhibition will also explain the steps the National Trust needs to take over the next few years, to ensure the property has a long and sustainable future which protects the delicate fabric of the site whilst allowing access and also bringing benefit to the local community of Surrey.
