Frank Lloyd (Edward's son) gave the house and gardens to Walthamstow Council in 1898, to be used by the public as a recreation ground - providing the council bought some adjoining land to be used as playing fields.  Hence the surrounding gardens are 'Lloyd Park'.  In 1950 the house became a Museum of Morris' life and works, recently refurbished as the William Morris Gallery.
