William Vaughan, Trustee of The Art Fund and Pek Peppin who worked in the Education Department at the National Gallery will provide a tour and a brief talk on the history of their house. Much of the original structure of the fifteenth century farmhouse at Lower Cockhill has been preserved, including the fine timbers of its hall roof. The most striking feature, however, is a small upper room, added c. 1480, in which there are some unique wall decorations. Boldly painted in a primitive manner, these contain religious symbol. The room is believed to have been used initially as a chapel, possibly by some religious confraternity.
