Milton's Cottage is the only surviving residence of the visionary poet and parliamentarian, John Milton. Although he lived here for less than 2 years - after fleeing London during the Great Plague of 1665 - it was an important place in the writer's life. Within these walls he completed his epic masterpiece, Paradise Lost, and was inspired to write its sequel, Paradise Regain'd. Now a writer's house museum, Milton's Cottage hosts one of the most important collections of Milton's first editions on public display as well as a unique literary garden, planted with trees, flowers and herbs referenced in his poetry.
National Trust Trelissick is shedding light on its history, with a sequence of exhibitions in the house. ’Find the Time’ is the story of Trelissick told through 16 beautiful craft objects, each inscribed with a piece of its history for visitors to see, handle and play with. The exhibition starts in the 1750s, when landowner, John Lawrence, converted the original farmhouse into a villa, and ends in 1955 when former MP, Ida Copeland, gifted the estate to the National Trust. Trelissick families have made and lost fortunes, managed the land, sailed the sea, fought Fascism and championed Cornwall. The artworks have been made from natural materials to celebrate Trelissick’s love of the countryside.

Cathedral Church of St Barnabas – Nottingham ‘More to Nottingham than just Robin Hood’

The Cathedral Church of St Barnabas is the Cathedral for the Diocese of Nottingham. Built in 1844 and designed by Augustus Welby Pugin, famous for his work in the Houses of Parliament. The Cathedral has seen many reordering’s with the most recent taking place in 1993 to celebrate the 150th Anniversary of the Cathedral. This reordering looked to recapture the quintessence of Pugin’s vision, which had been lost over the years. This included the restoring of some of the paint work which had been covered over. One of the most beautiful parts of the Cathedral is the Blessed Sacrament Chapel. Which gives the best example of the work of Pugin; it really gives a glimpse of Pugin’s vision of Catholic Churches. The Cathedral is open every day and you’re more than welcome to pay a visit to the Cathedral whenever you’re in the Nottingham Area. The Cathedral of St Barnabas will show you that there is far more to Nottingham than just Robin Hood.
