Tours at 10am, 11.30am, 2pm, and 3.30pm. Please specify preferred time slot.

A richly decorated time capsule of Arts & Crafts design, once owned by David Parr, a decorative painter employed by the Cambridge firm of Leach & Sons, who lived in the house for 40 years from 1887 – 1927. It remained largely untouched during the intervening years thanks to his grand-daughter Elsie, who lived there with her family until 2013 when the house was bought by a charity and opened to the public. Each tour, for 6 people at a time, will take 75 minutes.

Pay and display parking available nearby.

This event has been organised by the Essex Fundraising Committee Volunteer Fundraising Committee to help raise money for the Art Fund.
