The first in a new series of programmes about Frome’s nearest National Trust property, ‘Welcome to Stourhead’ is a journey around the estate through the eyes of the volunteers. Guides, gardeners, buggy drivers and shop assistants describe their roles and talk about what Stourhead means to them.
Future programmes will include features on Stourhead’s art collection; research and conservation; the history of the Hoare family; archaeological finds in the wider estate and special events such as the ‘Festival of the Voice’
