William Morris- The Red House

William Morris (24 March 1834 – 3 October 1896) was an English textile designer, artist, writer, and utopian socialist associated with the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood and the English Arts and Crafts Movement.

The 'Red House' - One of features of the elaborate Rococo Gardens of Painswick House was built in the mid 1730s - the owner, Charles Hyett, came to Painswick to escape the smog of Gloucester and named his new house 'Buenos Ayres'. Unfortunately, he died soon after and his son, Benjamin, created the fanciful garden (including this structure) in a hidden valley behind the house.

Kelmscott Manor is a Tudor farmhouse adjacent to the River Thames, dating from 1570 at Kelmscott, near Lechlade. William Morris chose it as his summer home, signing a joint lease with Pre-Raphaelite painter Dante Gabriel Rossetti in 1871. Morris loved the house as a work of true craftsmanship, unspoilt, unaltered and in harmony with the village and the surrounding countryside.
