The people responsible for creating this masterpiece should be very proud of themselves. It is a beautiful memorial to Wilfred Owen, his poems and to all those who lost their lives and made sacrifices for us during the Great War.

This house was re-envisioned since my previous visit before 2011 . Somebody with artistic genius took an ordinary house and turned it into something very special. The entrance spiral engraved with his last letter to his mother is heart wrenching . The inside is haunting...More
