Find the Time

National Trust Trelissick, Normal admission applies
National Trust Trelissick is shedding light on its history, with a sequence of exhibitions in the house. Find the time is the story of Trelissick told through sixteen beautiful craft objects, each inscribed with a piece of its history for visitors to see, handle and play with.
The exhibition starts in the 1750s when landowner, John Lawrance, converted the original farmhouse into a villa, and ends in 1955 when former MP, Ida Copeland, gifted the estate to the National Trust. Trelissick families have made and lost fortunes, managed the land, sailed the sea, fought Fascism and championed Cornwall.
The artworks have been made from natural materials to celebrate Trelissick’s love of the countryside.
