Mrs Wiz and I took an unplanned visit to Watts Gallery in Compton Surrey yesterday. It was set up to show the paintings of the Victorian Artist George Frederick Watts and also includes Arts and Crafts work by his wife Mary Seaton Watts. A very short walk away is the Watts Chapel which was designed by Mary in the A & C style.

Entrance to the gallery was 7 per Adult. If you are down this way, I'd highly recomend a visit.

No pics, sorry.
It was that unplanned we were coming back from an Antique/ junk shop and just continued onto compton, so no camera.

A fab place. We went a few years ago. I understand it has been refurbished recently?? Did you love the mauseoleum as well? Loved all the art works and the fantastic sculpture. The little tearoom next door was good too!!
