Over the past few months there has been a surge of interest in ‘behind the scenes’ aspects of life in National Trust properties. This in turn has led to the creation of lots of really good blogs to fuel this interest. The blogs engage and inform people all over the world about what we do, how we do it, and the background/history of the objects and buildings in our care.
As Nostell’s conservation blog has had a mention in the Autumn 2012 edition of the National Trust magazine (page 57), I thought we had to share some other NT blogs that are being written at other properties all over the country.
This week’s blog post shares with you some of my favourite blogs that I enjoy reading.
If you click on each screen shot it will take you to that particular blog.
Mount Stewart – Conservation Project
The Knole Conservation Blog
NT Treasure Hunt
Rob’s Blog @ Dyrham Park

These blogs show the variety of work that goes on in and around NT properties, from large scale building projects to academic research to conservation to gardening to exhibitions. Maybe they will inspire you to come and visit us! Which is your favourite blog?
