Sibfords History Society – Visit to Kelmscott Manor

Following on from the talk by Katherine Bradley on 20 April, in which she spoke about Oxfordshire and the Cotswolds’ Creative Women, including Jane and May Morris, wife and daughter of William Morris, we are planning this visit to Kelmscott Manor, the family home. William Morris, (1834 -1896), the poet, designer, craftsman and radical socialist was much influenced by his country residence, and its surroundings. 

We will have the chance to learn about his life and work and to view the house, which was thoroughly renovated during the Covid lockdown. A coach will take us from Sibford Village Hall to Lechlade, where there will be light refreshments followed by a guided tour of the Manor, and a cream tea later in the afternoon.

Tickets will be £40 per person, and can be obtained from members of the SHS committee or by email to . Please book your place before 15 June.
