About

The Emery Walker Trust
When Sir Emery Walker died in 1933 he left the house to his daughter Dorothy…
Dorothy had grown up with William Morris and Philip Webb and the beautiful objects that they had designed, and that their ideas had inspired. She kept 7 Hammersmith Terrace, as much as she could, as it had been in her father’s time, as did her friend Elizabeth de Haas, who inherited the house from her in 1963.

For many years Miss de Haas sought to find a solution to what would happen to the house after she died, and in 1996 she approached the British Museum, and several other institutions which had a particular connection with Emery Walker or Arts & Crafts, including the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Victorian Society, the Art Workers’ Guild, the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings and the Society of Antiquaries, with a view to forming a Trust to take over the house at her death.

The result was The Emery Walker Trust (registered charity number 1158505), founded just four months before Elizabeth’s death in June 1999. To set up an endowment for the Trust, Elizabeth sold Walker’s collection of private press books, which now forms The Emery Walker Library at the Cheltenham Art Gallery and Museum.

The objectives of the Trust are to: conserve, maintain and display Emery Walker’s House at 7 Hammersmith Terrace and its contents, and promote the advancement of the study and appreciation of the Arts & Crafts Movement.
