Hammersmith has 2 properties associated with William Morris.
One is Kelmscott House. The other is Emery Walker’s House.
Kelmscott is thrilling ,as it houses the printing press that Morris used.
Gardens and wild life were as inspiration to his work.
The drawings and tapestry bare witness to this.
This was a rare opportunity to view both the house and garden.
The walls of Emery Walker’s House were lined with material by Morris.
This is an unusual garden ,as it overlooks the River Thames.
Again the small garden was full of lovely flowers.
This scheme ,which allows entry into private gardens, is a wonderful way to spend a Sunday afternoon in Summer.
