Visit the Gloucestershire home of Dr Edward Jenner (1749-1823), one of Britain's greatest, most under-celebrated heroes. At this very house in 1796 the eminent doctor and scientist developed the smallpox vaccination after noticing populations exposed to cowpox didn't catch smallpox, pioneering the field of immunology in the process. Imagine a cure for cancer and you’re thinking on the right scale.

Visits to this Grade II listed home afford an opportunity to roam the rooms where Dr Jenner lived and worked. There’s also an exhibition space housing family items and medical instruments of the time, along with regular tours and talks.
