The Red House, home of William Morris, architect: Philip Webb
The focus for this Architecture Ride was William Morris, designer, craftsman, writer and socialist. He was born at in Walthamstow in 1834, and died, 'having done more work than most ten men', at Hammersmith in 1896.
The Red House being introduced to us in the garden by our National Trust guide.
Taking in natural inspiration that influenced some of Morris's designs.
Getting ready for the great trek north to Walthamstow and the William Morris Museum.
Stopping for lunch and admiring the Peter Burke sculptures at Woolwich Arsenal.
We overcame many obstacles quite admirably...
...and went for a well-earned drink after the museum.
