The Grange and St Edward's Presbytery Open Day
07 Sep 2017 - 11 Sep 2017
Part of Heritage Open Days
Friday 7 to Monday 10 September 10am-4pm and Tuesday 11 September 10am - 1pm
The Grange was built by Augustus Pugin in 1845 and remained in the family until 1928. The building reflects Pugin's belief in the Gothic style as the only true Christian architecture and his ideal to live out his life in the Middle Ages. Pugin produced some of his finest work at The Grange including designs for the House of Lords.
Visitors can explore the house decorated with his bright wallpaper designs, discover a private chapel and the library where Pugin worked. Leaflets about the building's history will be available.
Don't forget to visit St Augustines, Pugin's own 'ideal' Church, located just next to the Grange, as well as St. Edward's Presbytery, located between the two buildings.
