National Trust - Killerton House - Part One

Yesterday, making the most of the Autumn heatwave we headed over to Killerton House, owned by the National Trust. We have been there before, but a long while ago. The house looked smaller than I remember.

There was some wonderful embroidery and cross stitch examples. This photo was taken through a glass cabinet, in one of the exhibition rooms.

There was also an example of an incomplete quilt, which really caught my eye.

We then wandered through the gardens, enjoying the sunshine and then walked up to the chapel which sits at the back of the estate.

Set within the grounds is a chapel that was used by the family who owned and donated the estate to the National Trust. More on that a little later.
