Following the death of Alexandrina's father, Lord Alexander Peckover, in 1919, his valuable book collection was sold off. In the centenary of Lord Peckover's death, we wish to tell the story of his 'Lost Library' and wider collecting interests. We have copies of the Sotheby's sale catalogues and they reveal a very significant collection that is now dispersed across the world. We will have on loan several original Peckover books on display in the library.

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|

There may an additional charge for some tours/talks/events throughout the season.
- Assistance dogs are welcome.
- Funding raised by The National Lottery and awarded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
