Who do you Really think made the Railways?
A TVN Study Day - Tuesday 21st June 2016
at the Steam Museum, Swindon.

We hear so much about the wonderful works of Brunel and others but there would have been no railways without the hardworking navvies. Chris & Judy Rouse have been studying the lives of these people and will give us a glimpse into what they have found. Click Flyer below for more information.

KELMSCOTT, the Summer Home of William Morris- A TVN Study Day
Thursday 28th April and 4th August 2016
at Kelmscott Manor, Nr Lechlade, Oxfordshire.

Kelmscott Manor is a limestone manor house in the Cotswold village of Kelmscott, near Lechlade. It dates from around 1570, with a late 17th-century wing, and is a Grade I listed building. The house - perhaps the most evocative of all the houses associated with Morris - contains an outstanding collection of the possessions and works of Morris, his family and his Arts & Crafts associates, including furniture, original textiles, pictures, carpets, ceramics and metalwork.

The study day will take the form of lectures and a guided tour of house, garden and the village.
The speaker will be Dr. Kathy Haslam, curator and specialist in Morris and the Arts & Crafts Movement. She’s held curatorial posts at the V&A, Tullie House Museum in Cardiff as well as the Geffrye Museum in London. These were followed by 5 years as curator at Blackwell Arts & Crafts House in Cumbria after which she took up her post at Kelmscott.
