Morris's former family home, the eighteenth-century Water House, set in its own extensive grounds, features permanent displays of printed and woven fabrics, rugs and painted tiles by Morris and other members of the Arts and Crafts movement. The Gallery re-opens on August 2, 2012, with a display of Grayson Perry's 'Walthamstow Tapestry'.

I visited on 4th August just after the reopening and was very pleasantly surprised by the quality of refurbishment and the thoughtful use of space. The objects on display are fascinating and the breadth of interactive opportunities for adults and children are very appealing. The cafe and surrounding gardens were wonderfully inviting even though not yet fully complete. A surprising gem of a gallery in this part of town. I wasn't a William Morris fan, but certainly more interested now.
