Percy House gallery opened in May 2002. It
is situated in a historic 14th century building which had been hidden
from public view for over two decades.
With its unique features which include the famous Tudor ceiling,
fire places and plaster work, it is the ideal setting for the unusual
arts and crafts on display. The gallery hosts a large selection
of work by Cumbrian and British artists ranging from jewellery and
textiles to ceramics, paintings and photographs.
The downstairs gallery consists of four rooms each with its unique
character. The oak beams have been dated to 1390 and the original
flagstone floor still remains.
The upstairs, with its Tudor ceiling dated 1598, was the home of
the Percy baliff. It is divided into three rooms.
After much hard work and help from friends Percy House Gallery
re-opened on Saturday, December 12 2015 to coincide with the Taste
Cumbria weekend of events.
The gallery will be open on Christmas Eve.
The gallery wil be closed December 25, 26 and 27th. We re-open December
