In 1924, Clemence and Laurence Housman moved to the house they designed for themselves, Longmeadow, adjacent to the property of their Quaker friends, Roger and Sarah Clark. Here Clemence took up gardening, laying down her engraving tools for trowels and spades. The siblings lived here together until Clemence had to be moved to a nursing home in the 1950s due to failing health.
