William Morris Gallery

WILLIAM MORRIS - Designer, Craftsman, Writer and Socialist - was born at Elm House, Walthamstow, on 24 March 1834. He died,'having done more work than most ten men', at Hammersmith on 3 October 1896.

The WILLIAM MORRIS GALLERY, opened by Prime Minister Clement Attlee in 1950, is the only public museum devoted to England\'s best known and most versatile designer. The Gallery is located at Walthamstow in Morris\'s family home from 1848 to 1856, the former Water House, a substantial Georgian dwelling of about 1750 which is set in its own extensive grounds (now Lloyd Park).
