William Morris was a writer, artist, craftsman and socialist and most often known today for his timeless patterns on wallpaper, material and much much more. He had a house built in 1860 in Bexleyheath, just up the road from us and it was described then as the "beautifullest place on earth." While I've nothing against Bexleyheath, I suspect back in 1860 it was a very different place and most probably classed as country, which it's a far cry from today. It's also our local National Trust property and yet this was our first visit there, I don't know what took us so long but I"m pretty sure it won't be so long before we visit again. We cycled there from Greenwich in our first group cycle, but more about the cycle another day as there's lots from the Red House I want to share.
