Follow me on:

Weren't you saying, just the other day, "Why, oh why didn't I take a picture of that lead peacock statue at Powis Castle in Wales?" If that was you, you are in luck. The National Trust just launched a new website listing the collections of many dozens of Abbeys, Houses, Castles, and more. National Trust Collections contains 734,659 items as of today, and cataloging continues. Only a fraction of the items currently have accompanying photographs but, still -- the detailed descriptions, alone, make this an excellent site for research purposes. There are lots of search options, too, so what are you waiting for? Go. Have fun. Learn things! After all, one never knows when one may be called upon to distinguish silver sugar tongs from silver toast tongs.
