There is a cotton bonnet at the D.H. Lawrence Birthplace Museum at Eastwood, which was donated for its opening in 1976. In this second story about the life of D.H. Lawrence, Carolyn Melbourne (the Museum’s manager) tells us something about its fascinating history. Discover too an interesting link to a wonderful documentary about Lawrence’s early life in Eastwood, including a tour of the very special house (now museum) where Lawrence was born.

Its especially wonderful to be able to explore these stories and places while the Museum itself is closed for public health reasons due to Covid-19. We very much look forward to when it re-opens later this year, so we can all take a look inside again and enjoy experiencing this history in person.
