The stories behind the picture
We know a lot about the Yorke family, but the servants who devoted much of their lives to Erddig also have their stories to tell.
This picture of the servants was taken in the garden in 1887.
The last squire of Erddig
'It's probably what my father would have liked - the old place restored to its former glory.' Philip Yorke III generously gave Erddig, its contents and estate to the National Trust in 1973.
