A morning at Stourhead

Anthony went  into the archives at Stourhead to study the life at Stourhead before World War 1 and how the people there were affected. The National Trust has gathered material from families of former employees as well as the owners. The research was to facilitate a sculpture project from 2014  - the centenary of the outbreak of that War. Percheron horses were bred at Stourhead before the War as draft horses -  a breed that was particularly used in the War. It was raining but the scent of the rhododendrons was intoxicating.
