Dyrham Park was built at the end of the 17th century for Sir William Blathwayt. It's our local National Trust property and Emma has been here countless times as well as worked here over two winters pruning in the gardens. This place is beautiful and the house and the garden have been used for many films over the years including Remains of the Day. There is a huge deer park where you can occasionally see the deer grazing. It's a timeless corner of England.
This view is the original front of the house and the lawn was the grand driveway leading up to the house. The Trust are in the process of changing the gardens at the moment with new planting and some new layouts. This week we will show you the church and graveyard which is fascinating (if you like graveyards - which we strangely do!)
