A rare opportunity to see the unique wall paintings at

 This Grade one listed building with its 1527 series of wall paintings is open for a week in April and we have arranged a visit on Friday 24th April. OPEN AGAIN ESPECIALLY FOR US ON 23 JUNE

Karen Murphy (one of the owners) who has done extensive research on the property will give a talk lasting approximately 50 minutes. This will outline the history of the building and the fascinating political, and religious influences on the paintings and their subject matter in this period of change in the second quarter of the sixteenth century.

There will then be a chance to explore this small cottage.

The visit will include coffee and biscuits on arrival at 10.30 and if requested a sandwich type lunch at the end of the visit.

The cost of the visit is £10.00 plus, if requested, £7.00 for lunch

All proceeds are to benefit the upkeep of the house and paintings which gets no outside funding.

You make your own way there.  There is free street parking outside the property, the address of which is 132 Piccotts End, Hemel Hempstead, Herts, HP1 3AU. Please car share if possible as parking is limited.
