NOTES: Kettle's Yard museum was created by Jim and Helen Ede from 1957-1973, out of four derelict Georgian cottages. The initial work on the house was by architect Rowland de Winton Aldridge in 1957, but the exhibition spaces were added by Sir Leslie Martin and David Owers in 1969-1970. The whole house museum has been refurbished by Jamie Fobert Architects in 2018. The cottage and the 1970s extension by Martin was retained, as well as the Victorian facade on Castle Street. Everything in between was demolished, including a later extension by Martin from the 1980s.
