  • A small and tranquil place by National Trust norms, with an absorbing story to tell and big paintings to see. Best to visit on a bright day. There is a car park directly opposite, but could be better signposted.
  • Beautiful and moving place to visit, free entry to National Trust members.
  • Very moving and unique experience - excellently displayed
  • Small venue housing Stanley's work. No toilets or other amenities, cash only. Pub other side of road are the nearest toilets. Parking consists of a small lay by suitable for 3 cars - a 4th at a push. The building housing the art is kept dark in order to preserve the paint. There are leaflets guiding you through the murals.
  • An absolutely amazing work of art. England's 20th century answer to the Sistine Chapel.
