The Unfinished Portrait...

A film made by the National Trust...

Many of our places were home to, and shaped by, people who challenged conventional ideas of gender and sexuality. Fifty years after the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality, we’re exploring our LGBTQ heritage with a programme called Prejudice and Pride.

Robert Wyndham Ketton-Cremer – the last Squire of Felbrigg – was known as a shy, gentle, unmarried man who restored his exquisite ancestral home and bequeathed it to the nation.

Until now, official accounts of Robert’s life have offered only a partial story and neglected to acknowledge what was widely accepted by those who knew him, preferring instead to describe him as ‘the bachelor squire’…or ‘not one for the ladies’.

This film offers a new way of seeing Robert and his fascinating life.
