Emery Walker's House
The GardenThis 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 1898 teracotta 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’ designs. 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.
