THE MUSEUM (2)
Arguably Wisbech’s most influential daughter, Octavia Hill was a social reformer who essentially pioneered the idea of the Big Society. She believed that happy people worked better, and spent her life building houses and communities. She went on to help found the National Trust and created the vast majority of London’s green spaces. The Tardis-like Octavia Hill House focuses on her life and puts philosophy put into action by opening itself up to local painting, singing and school groups.
