Wrabness in the News

 

 

Artist Grayson Perry puts finishing touches 

to green and gold gingerbread holiday cottage 

 

 I love it! It’s a beautiful spot, and it needed something like this.’ 

‘Very interesting but in the wrong place. It has totally ruined the natural scenery.’

‘We are quite privileged to live next door to it. I suspect the number of visitors will be annoying though.’

‘People will come and visit from London and have a very amusing tale to tell at dinner parties.  But they won’t have to look at it day in and day out and wonder if they are victims of a practical joke.’

 

The press have reported mixed views from local residents; however most are complaining about traffic

and inconsiderate parking by visitors wishing  to glimpse Julie's House.  If you are planning to visit please park in the Wrabness Station Car Park - its only a short walk from there.
