The Gibb sisters, Alice and Janet continued to live in the house until their deaths in the 1970’s.

The Grove Museum of Victorian Life tells the story of the Gibb family and their Victorian summer retreat, which later became their permanent residence and family home. Beautifully preserved to provide an intriguing insight into life in the Victorian and Edwardian eras, a visit to the house, outbuildings and country garden is like stepping back in time.
The Grove will close on 8 September 2014 to enable emergency conservation works to be undertaken to the building and is scheduled to reopen on 28 March 2015.
