Step back in time and experience the 1950s. In this time capsule of post-war years, you will glimpse the life of an extraordinary couple. Renowned photographer E. Chambre Hardman and his gifted wife Margaret lived and worked together in this remarkable Georgian house for 40 years, keeping everything, changing nothing.

- Listen to the reminiscences of former members of staff.

      Interesting, Nice guidning. Nice break in between all the Beatles history we made. Close to the church of England. Glad we found this occasion to see and hear about the Hardman´s place, life and work. Read full review
