Standen House was built in the 1890s for wealthy London solicitor James Beale. It was designed by the architect Philip Webb and the interior of the house retains many of the original wallpapers and textiles designed by Webb’s friend William Morris. It also contains important contents by Morris’s Arts and Crafts Movement contemporaries including William De Morgan and W.A.S Benson. The 12-acre garden has magnificent views over the Sussex Weald.
The visit includes an introductory talk, which will take place on arrival.
