Gaskell House Gets £260,000

English Heritage has awarded the Gaskell House with £260,000 for much needed restoration.

Watch this BBC clip--it's heartbreaking that the Gaskell house was allowed to fall into such disrepair, and it's tangible evidence that she was unjustly forgotten as a major Victorian author for over a hundred years.

  1. Thanks for the link. I'm looking forward to being able to visit the Gaskell House - how marvellous! I'm a member of English Heritage, so I hope there's an article in the magazine soon on this.
