'Experience the thrilling world of rascals, teasers and fleeting deer. Could you acquire 'Crump' Dutton's taste for lavish entertainment and risky gambling?' It was the home of Charles Dutton, 7th Lord Sherborne, until 1982 when he bequeathed his family's estate to the National Trust. The grandstand has been reconstructed to its original form and is the first project of its kind undertaken by the Trust that relies totally on archaeological evidence. The park behind was designed by Charles Bridgeman in 1725. The Sherborne Estate is 1650ha (4000 acres) of rolling Cotswold countryside with sweeping views down to the River Windrush. Much of the village of Sherborne is owned by the Trust, including the post office and shop, school and social club. There are walks for all ages around the estate, which include the restored and working water meadows.
