The project involves the conservation of the home of artisan painter and decorator, David Parr.
The house is a unique survival of a furnished and decorated Victorian artisan's dwelling in the heart of Cambridge. Interventions will be minimal but the external envelope will be conserved and repaired in order to reduce environmental threats to the interiors.
There will be a 'Visitors' Shed' in the garden on the footprint of an earlier garden store to accommodate small tour groups for presentations and discussions. The project is Heritage Lottery Funded and work is due to commence in October 2016.
