Erddig, a modest country house near Wrexham, dates back to the 17th century.
The property was left to the Yorke family in 1733 and members of that family continued to live there for the next 240 years .
Whilst our lives are focused on decluttering, the Yorke family rarely threw anything away.
The result, therefore, is a collection of at least 20,000 objects which form a quite remarkable social history.
The National Trust took ownership of Erddig in 1973 and began a four year period of restoration — it is truly a time capsule.
The last Squire of Erddig, Philip Yorke III, died in 1978.
