    National Trust Lectures - Tyntesfield, a spectacular Somerset Victorian House

    Behind every country house there is usually a long family history. At Tyntesfield it started in the 19th century with William Gibbons and ended in the 21st century with the death of his great-grandson 2nd Lord Wraxall. It is a story of great enterprise, great wealth and philanthropism followed by a dramatic change of fortune and decline.

    When the Tyntesfield Estate was put up for Auction by Christie’s it was widely reported that the house had the last and most complete Victorian interior ever have to come on the market.
