Small National Trust owned property that has a number of thought provoking works of art by Stanley Spencer. (Best search using Google for an in-depth description of the works.)

Lot more to see than we thought (including a temp art exhibition). Were there at least 2 hours and bought a present from the shop. You can picnic at the back in the small garden (though we didn't as we had planned to go to a second NT place same day). Interesting place
