Building    From 1730  To 1962

The Grange

Categories: Property

It consisted of two eighteenth century red-brick houses. Famous occupants were, Samuel Richardson, the writer and printer, from 1738 to 1754, and Sir Edward Burne-Jones from 1867 until his death in 1898. Here Burne-Jones had his studio and entertained many of his artistic contemporaries. At that time it was in a fairly inaccessible area. Supposedly, the directions to get to it were, 'Go down the Cromwell Road till your cabhorse drops dead, and then ask someone'. There was a failed attempt to preserve the building in the early 1950s and the site is now occupied by a block of flats named after Samuel Richardson.

Our start date is approximate. The picture source is worth visiting.
