The Collections, Archives and Library Services team manage all potential gifts of historic objects to the collections through the Registrar. Our primary goal is to collect the original contents associated with the people who lived and worked in the properties we care for. This direct personal link is what brings our properties to life as homes and not merely rooms full of valuable things.

The curators answer public enquiries on the collections and advise on historic interiors. We also give pre-arranged talks on a range of subjects linked to the Trust collections.

The team also maintains standards and policies connected to the collections, including the Accreditation standard, documentation procedures and the acquisitions and disposals policy. These can be found on this website here.
