On the 7th May we visited the house of William Morris, Nuffield Place.  William Morris was at one time one of the richest man in the world. He rose to fame with the manufacture of cars for the mass market.  The Morris car, manufactured in Cowley, Oxford.  The house was left to the Nuffield College, an Oxford college he founded.  The proviso was the house was to be left as it was when he died.  The house has now been donated to the National Trust.  The house is not a grand house, but a lovely down to earth type of house, set in the  1950’s house.  It was lovely to see his wardrobe in the bedroom which housed his tools.  The pictures I have taken are all from outside the house. We were told it was laid out as if Lord Nuffield and his wife had popped out to buy some cakes for tea, and they would be back in a few minutes.
