Treasures include a medieval shrine to St Thomas Cantilupe and the Traherne windows by Thomas Denny. A new Ascension window and sculpture by John Maine RA, commemorating the Special Air Service Regiment, was unveiled this year. The library building houses the unique Mappa Mundi and Chained Library.

Kelmscott Manor

'A Heaven on Earth...' DSC_1329Morris loved the house as a work of true craftsmanship, totally unspoilt and unaltered, and in harmony with the village and the surrounding countryside. He considered it so natural in its setting as to be almost organic, it looked to him as if it had "grown up out of the soil"; and with "quaint garrets amongst great timbers of the roof where of old times the tillers and herdsmen slept". Its beautiful gardens, with barns, dovecote, a meadow and stream, provided a constant source of inspiration for Morris until his death in 1896.
