I came upon the Painted Room by chance and was pleased to be in time for a short talk about its discovery and the history of the house and its former occupants.

Though in the centre of the town, close to the Market House, so unprepossessing is its entrance it is easy to be misled about the level of interest it is likely to have. Its opening hours are little unusual and if making a special visit...More
