Product Overview

Kelmscott is forever linked with the name of William Morris, pioneer conservationist and utopian socialist, designer and father of the Arts and Crafts tradition. The role that Kelmscott played in forming Morris's thoughts cannot be underestimated. What appealed to Morris was the organic relationship between the Manor and its landscape, the linkage of stone walls and roof tiles to the geology and the soil, the agricultural cycle of the adjacent farm to the seasons, the people and their 'honest toil'. Representing the fruits of the Kelmscott Landcape Project established in 1996 by the Society of Antiquities, the owners of Kelmscott Manor today, this book examines Kelmscott's archaeology, from prehistory to the present day, the architectural development of the Manor before and after Morris knew it, the art that the village and Manor have inspired, the many historic buildings in the village, including the highly unusual and intriguing church, and the people whose names are preserved in the parish registers.
