Elizabeth Waterhouse (1834-1918) wrote several books, including a collection of verse and some anthologies. She is perhaps most remembered for “The Island of Anarchy” and for the Yattendon Metalworking Class, an evening class in copper and brass working for local men and boys, similar to many such guilds and classes inspired by the Arts and Crafts Movement.
