Piccotts End Cottage Appeal

The Dacorum Heritage Trust Ltd (DHT) is the Accredited Museum for the area of Dacorum, and is based in a converted fire station in Berkhamsted.  They have recently launched an appeal to purchase the Grade I listed medieval cottage at Piccotts End in Hemel Hempstead.  The aim is to establish an interpretation centre in the cottage and open up the property to the public.

Piccotts End

Pieta, Christ in Majesty and Baptism of Christ, Piccotts End, Hemel Hempstead

 

The paintings were discovered during restoration work on the cottage in 1953.  The late-fifteenth-century panels include Christ in Majesty, the Baptism of Christ, a Pieta, St Peter, St Clement, St Catherine and St Margaret of Antioch.
