We're delighted that one of Killerton's paintings is celebrated in the new National Trust 100 Paintings book. You can view 'Lady Harriet Acland crossing the River Hudson' in the house at Killerton.
The River Hudson was the dividing line between the Americans and British during the American War of Independence. Lady Harriet sailed in a small boat with two servants and a chaplain, crossing enemy lines to nurse her injured husband. Having nursed her husband back to health, Lady Harriet returned to Britain. It's a fascinating story of a very brave lady.
Lady Harriet Acland was also in the news last year as one of the wards in a Nightingale hospital was named after her, recognising her great heroism and nursing care.
The book of 100 paintings of portraits and landscapes, to abstract works and architectural views, celebrates some of the best works of art in National Trust houses.

What is Gift Aid?
Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points.
Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:
- Gift Aid Admission
- Standard Admission
If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you a clear choice between the Gift Aid Admission prices and the Standard Admission prices at the admission point. It's entirely up to you which ticket you choose.
Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.
An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below:
|Amount paid by visitor||£11.00||£10.00|
|Tax refund from Government*||£2.75||£0.00|
|Total received by the National Trust||£13.75||£10.00|
