Another winter season begins…

Welcome back to the Shaw’s Corner winter blog! We closed to the public on Sunday 2nd November after a really wonderful season. The winter sees a real change in our work, as we switch from looking after our visitors, alongiside the house, to really being able to focus on the building and collections, as well as all the other behind the scenes work. In the two weeks since we’ve closed we’ve had our staff and volunteers end of season meeting – complete with a very tasty lunch at The Brocket Arms and an evocative screening of Shaw’s Androcles and the Lion starring Jean Simmons in the stunning Palladian Church of Ayot St Lawrence. We’ve also been looking at the spirit of place of Shaw’s Corner: the unique, distinctive and cherished features that make it the place that we all hold so dear. We had a wonderful workshop, bringing together Shavians, directors, academics, staff and volunteers, as well as our visitors’ comments to really capture what the place means.

Today we’ve started on the winter clean and putting the house to bed. We’ve done the Dining Room, Entrance Hall and Kitchen today. A great start!
