Having checked the website for opening times (it is not open everyday and only afternoons) Made a day trip to the lovely area around Dedham and visited on a glorious summers day when the grounds looked their best.
Volunteer staff excellent to guide and answer queries in this homely house left much as it was in the Munnings' day. Pictures displayed with good captions and story of Sir Alfred and the periods and people of influence in his life well told. His note books and sketches added to the interest and story. Pictures shown on two floors of house - no lift evident.
It is the story of a great painter of recent time who was his own man. Interesting short video interview of Lady Munnings in black and white made an interesting side attraction.
After the house visit the studio in the gardens and the excellent tea room adjoining.
A great day out for us!
