Sandham Chapel

First we will visit Sandham Memorial Chapel, commissioned by relatives of Lieutenant H.W. Sandham in the 1920s as a memorial of his death in WW1. We will view the series of large-scale paintings by Sir Stanley Spencer around the walls which were inspired by his own war experiences, and completed in 1932.

There will be a break for tea / coffee and biscuits after the visit, at a nearby pub.

Then we shall proceed to Nuffield Place, the home in the 1930s of the founder of Morris Motor cars, William Morris, Lord Nuffield, who was also a great philanthropist.

The house and its original collections and his tools give a fascinating insight into the 1930s lifestyle of this modest millionaire.

There is a café serving light lunches, etc.
