The former home of artist, designer and craftsman Frank Dickinson (1874-1961). Designed and built by Dickinson between 1902-04, the Grade II listed interior was created entirely by him, inspired by the ideals of Ruskin, Carlyle & Morris, in an eclectic mix of Arts and Crafts, Art Nouveau and Glasgow School style. Rescued by the local Council in 1972, restored and opened to the public in 1974, it stands as a unique testament to the power and influence of the English Arts and Crafts Movement. Guided tours for groups by prior arrangement only, outside normal opening hours. A fee of Â£3.50 per person (to include introductory talk) will be charged. Wheelchair access to ground floor only. OPEN Open 1.30pm – 5.30pm on the first Sunday of each month plus Bank Holiday Sunday & Monday (except Christmas and New Year) Admission free.
