The Country House is Dead, Long Live the Country House!

The National Trust cares for more than 350 country houses, ranging from estates like Wimpole and Hardwick Hall to the more modest homes of 19th century writers and scientists. What is the future for these houses, as they move ever further from being homes? Are they museums, or can they be something more – even, in the words of one visitor, ‘the people’s estate’?
