In 1886 a working-class Victorian decorative artist named David Parr bought a small terraced house in Cambridge. Over the course of the next 40 years, he quietly transformed the house into a shrine to Gothic Revival, not discovered until just 10 years ago.
The property has enjoyed a full program of conservation and restoration work since its discovery and opened for guided tours to the public for the first time in May 2019.
Tamsin Wimhurst, social historian and Chair of the David Parr House, and photographer Helena g Anderson will talk us through the discovery of the house, the complex processes of conservation and restoration, and what it's like to photograph a gem like this.
They will be sharing some of the complex but fascinating work that has enabled this ordinary Cambridge terraced house to enchant us all.
