Final years

Allen and his wife spent the last decade of his life not at Farnham but at Wylye in Wiltshire in a house they had noticed on their regular visits to Bradford-on-Avon. Stables were converted into a studio where Allen continued to paint until his death.

A substantial number of his works were bequeathed to the Curtis Museum in Alton which later became one of the founding museums for the County Museums Service. 

The Allen Gallery was named in recognition of this bequest, and regular exhibitions of Allen’s works continue to be held there.
