Cranmer – a surprising Hub for the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood

When staying with us at Cranmer Country Cottages,  you may be interested in visiting our local parish church St Mary & All Saints at Sculthorpe. It is famous for housing 3 magnificent  Arts & Crafts stained glass windows by Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood (PRB) artisans Burne-Jones, Ford Maddox Brown & Thomas Jekyll, the windows were designed and installed in the church during the 1860’s.  
 
Philip Webb another Pre-Raphaelite brother was responsible for designing Victorian additions to the nearby Cranmer Hall.  
 
For more information about William Morris his firm of Art Workmen & the  Pre-Raphaelites visit the comprehensive show at Tate Britain http://www.tate.org.uk/whats-on/tate-britain/exhibition/pre-raphaelites-victorian-avant-garde The exhibition has certainly given us some insight into how important our small Norfolk back water was during the Victorian period.
