Kelmscott Manor has been awarded £4.3 million by the National Lottery's Heritage Lottery Fund to save the building from dilapidation and to construct new facilities. the house was the retreat of influential designer William Morris fro 1871 to 1896 and since 1962 has been owned by the Society of Antiquaries of London, of which Morris was a fellow.
