As part of Heritage Open Days the Watts' home, which is privately owned, is opening its doors (for free).
'A tour of Limnerslease is a unique experience as it is the only house and studio from the 19th century complete with the original artist's furniture. Ceiling decoration by Mary Watts in gesso relief, a style that later found its most sublime expression in the Cemetery Chapel. You can view Limnerslease before the restoration of the studio which is a unique opportunity to glimpse the start of a nationally important project'.
I've just spoken to Watts Gallery and they have told me that to get tickets we need to book in advance on the day. Today they were sold out for all tours by 11am. You need to call the visitor centre from 10.30am to reserve your place on the 3pm tour. The direct number is[masked] or the general number is 01483 810235.
I am not making a booking for the whole group because as some of you know there are issues with 'no shows' and I don't want to find I have booked more tickets than for people who have come along.
