Wonderful and amazing visit to this little gem of an artist's studio. Would love to go again. Unfortunately as there is not a lot of space in the museum think it would be a challenge for a disabled person.

For those interested in art, the studio is a 'must-see' - it must have one of the most comprehensive collections of an artist's work in the UK. For those not so fussed by sculpture (and the excellent collection of drawings) Lamb's life story is sufficient...More
