Photographer's Note

Trerice

Owned by the Arundell family for nearly 500 years; the present house was completed in 1572-3,incorporating the earlier fifteenth century farm house.

Trerice eventually passed into the Acland family of Killerton in Devon after the Arundell line died out in the mid 18th century.The north wing suffered in a storm in the 1860s and the derelict wing was dismantled.

Cornwall County Council bought the estate in 1919 and divided up much of the land into smaller farms for war veterans.In 1953 Trerice was purchased by the National Trust and due to the generosity of the tenant, Mr J.F. Elton the north wing was restored.

This large window is a mullion window and has 576 panes of glass, some of which are still the original from the 1570s.

The two gentlemen at the door were volunteers, greeting people to the house, ready to answer any questions.

I will post two extra shots in the workshop to show alternative views of this building.

Thanks for looking.
