Discover the picturesque late Victorian home and Edwardian garden created by the Manders, Wolverhampton paint and varnish manufacturers. Superb craftsmanship and rooms you can easily imagine living in form a wonderful setting for a very personal collection of William Morris furnishings and Pre-Raphaelite art. This guide tells the story of a family and a firm, and of the collecting partnership between Geoffrey and Rosalie Mander and the National Trust that has so enriched Wightwick. It features many of the collections highlights, with family photographs and some of the Manders own words.
