Step back in time at Lady Waterford Hall, a former Victorian school adorned with a series of Pre-Raphaelite murals.
Originally commissioned as a school by painter and philanthropist Louisa Anne Beresford, Marchioness of Waterford in 1860, Lady Waterford Hall became the canvas for her artistic masterpiece: a series of Pre-Raphaelite watercolour murals depicting local villagers in Biblical scenes. Take a peak at the original visitors' book, revealing the people from across the world who came to admire the dramatic interiors, including the Queen of Netherlands and one of the founders of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, William Holman Hunt.
