Protect Killerton’s treasures appeal

Thanks to you, last year we fixed our leaky roof. Now the interiors are protected from the rain, we need your help to raise £70,000 to care for some of our most important treasures. You can help conserve some irreplaceable portraits, musical instruments and costume from the fashion collection. The Aclands left Killerton to the nation for everyone’s enjoyment. Will you donate today to help keep caring for Killerton?
