Munnings bought Castle House in Dedham, Suffolk, in 1919 and lived there, with only a short break during the Second World, until his death in 1959. He always described his base as "the House of my Dreams" and the nearby River Stour and the countryside around Dedham provided him with the inspiration for many of his greatest works. In his autobiography, Munnings described canoeing with friends on the river "between thick clumps of dark green rushes in the shallows, under a wide alley of overhanging willows, by open stretches of flat meadows where cattle and horses grazed. White-blossoming water-weed lay in dazzling patches. Dragon-flies, an occasional kingfisher and swallows skimming the surface." "This full river was our playground, and a reminder of my youth".
