About the event
‘You do realise that this house is one end of a medieval merchant’s house with a Tudor extension.’ So began the thirty year restoration. Find out how the funny-shaped house received its name and took over Hilary’s life, emotions and finances. A passionate conservationist and writer, Hilary will take you on fascinating historical and architectural journey. Hear how Hilary overcame the challenges as she fought to protect and restore a very special building, which she describes as a house with a heart.
