Emery Walker, the great printer and antiquary who helped his friend William Morris establish the Kelmscott Press, lived here from 1903 to 1933. His daughter Dorothy inherited the house, which boasts Britain's best-preserved Arts and Crafts interior with many original William Morris wallpapers, textiles and furniture. The small garden has fine views of the Thames from a raised platform, which is overhung by a flourishing wisteria in summer. Paths are composed of original 1890s terracotta tiles and the adjacent conservatory has a grapevine descended from the one at Hogarth’s house. Plants are mainly those featured in Dorothy Walker’s garden diaries (1903-1960), and there is a bed highlighting flowers appearing in William and May Morris’s designs.
Part of the Norland Estate, laid out by Robert Cantwell in 1846. Award-winning garden restoration and design with enhanced planting. Roses, central herbaceous borders and an interesting variety of trees and shrubs.
