At Ellys Manor House, we would like to say a huge thank you to everybody who has visited the house thus far (in the last seven years), and contributed to our wall paintings appeal. Due to your kindness we have managed to have a section of these important works conserved by Bianca Madden and Claudia Fiocchetti, two of our very finenest conservators in this field of work.
For anyone who does not know of Ellys Manor House and the important late medieval/renaissance domestic wall paintings in the upper rooms, I urge you strongly to visit.
Clive Taylor lives in an architectural jewel, whose origins can be traced back to the 16th century: Ellys Man-or House, originally built by wealthy wool merchants in Lincolnshire, east of Nottingham. The house‘s style reflects the Northern Renaissance, the Renais-sance version that spread throughout northern Europe, following the trail of the Hanseatic merchants. Clive Taylor on an otherwise little-known Renais-sance style and its history.
Open from Easter until 31st October daily from 10am to 5pm, Closed on Tuesdays.
Last admission to house at 4.30pm.
As Ellys Manor House is a private home, the house may, on occasions, have to close without prior notice due to other commitments. To avoid disappointment, please telephone first.
