picture labels were updated and a Wellington trail was established in the
house to mark the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo.
Creepy Crawly Corner has been installed in the old Smokehouse next to the play
area. This is a fantastic interactive space for children which helps them to
learn about the insects and animals that live in the garden.
Barnes-Murphy has been appointed as the 2015 residential artist. His beautiful
illustrations have created a wonderful exhibition which has proved popular

estate by making some exciting changes, whilst maintaining the core characteristics
that have developed over hundreds of years. They hope that their strong
feelings of affection for this unique piece of our nation’s heritage will
ensure that the Bagot family continues to live here for many years to come.
