The Guardian: ‘England hath need of thee’: appeal to save Milton’s Paradise Lost cottage

Coronavirus statement

25th March 2020

Following the latest government advice on coronavirus, and in response to increasing public health concerns, Milton’s Cottage is current.

Our first priority has to be the health and welfare of our wonderful team of volunteers as well as our visitors. As such, we’ll be delaying the opening of Milton’s Cottage, including our literary garden, to help fight the spread of Covid-19 while we continue to listen to government advice.

Our website will include regular updates about our plans for 2020, which will continue to evolve in order to best meet government guidelines and the needs of our visitors.

In the meantime, we will add new content to our website and social media accounts to keep people engaged whilst in social isolation.

We thank everyone for their support and understanding during these exceptional circumstances – and invite you to read our first coronavirus newsletter to discover how an earlier pandemic connects Paradise Lost to Milton’s Cottage:
