Iconic Arts and Crafts home of William Morris - writer, artist, craftsman and socialist The only house commissioned, created and lived in by William Morris, founder of the Arts & Crafts movement, Red House is a building of extraordinary architectural and social significance.

Designed by Philip Webb and completed in 1860, it was described by Edward Burne-Jones as 'the beautifullest place on earth'. Acquired by the Trust only 10 years ago, the rooms at Red House give a unique view of William Morris’ earliest designs and decorative schemes. Its secrets are slowly being revealed, conservation work in 2013 uncovered an unknown Pre-Raphaelite wall painting and a very early Morris repeating floral pattern.

These original features and furniture by Morris and Philip Webb, stained glass and paintings by Burne-Jones, the bold architecture and a garden designed to 'clothe the house', add up to a fascinating and rewarding place to visit.

In 2010 funchal experienced extreme weather causing extensive damage to Funchal. At least 42 people died and many injured. Following the floods and numerous mud slides the front at Funchal was ruined. We visited in 2015 to find the front has been renovated at a cost of over 10,000000 euros. With pleasant gardens and open meeting areas, the people of Madeira should be proud of this work. A wonderful achievement.

Pico do arieiro is 1818m high and Madeira third highest peak. The footpath northwards to Pico Ruivo is recommended for serious hikers only.

Known as Nuns Valley or Valley of the Nuns.

Big Pit, now the National Coal Museum of Wales, was just one of a number of collieries to be operated in the Blaenavon area during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The mine, however, was the most important colliery in the town for over one hundred years and has an interesting history.

The shaft at Big Pit, originally known as Kearsley’s Pit, was sunk to the depth of 200ft by the Blaenavon Company in 1860. It was deepened in 1880 to its present depth of 300ft and became known as ‘Big Pit’ because of its unusually large elliptical shaft. Parts of Big Pit, however, date to the early nineteenth century. Big Pit was an amalgamation of several mines, namely Coity Pits, Dodd’s Slope, Coity Level, Blaenavon New Mine, Elled Drift, Forge Pit, Forge Slope and Forge Level, the earliest part of the mine, which was sunk in 1812.

Nice view, L1ke.
