A press release from the National Trust says Erddig, has been voted one of the top 10 historic sites in the UK, and number one in the historic house category.

UKTV 'Britain’s Best' programme last night revealed the results of the 600,000 votes cast showing that the house received 12,000 votes making it eighth in the poll behind Stonehenge, HMS Victory, Liverpool Cathedral, Tamworth Castle, Lincoln Castle, Hadrian’s Wall and York Minster.

We're building up quite an archive about Erddig [view history], and only this morning we received some old family photos from a contributor showing scenes from around the grounds in the '50s.

What makes it so popular?
