The Grange: A.W.N. Pugin

My husband Jared Brown and I stayed in August WN Pugin's home, which is managed by the Landmark Trust, back in 2008, with a group of like-minded Arts & Crafts enthusiasts. The restoration of the house retained much of what Pugin had originally designed for himself. So we did not lose any of the flavour of his genius.
