Scotney Castle, Kent (Accredited Museum)
This collection has 12,880 items online
With over 10 000 objects, the collection at Scotney Castle is the largest National Trust collection in the South East. There is the large library of the Hussey family, assembled since the seventeenth century, but principally by Edward Hussey III (1807-94) and his grandson, the architectural historian Christopher Hussey (1899-1970). Includes a large stock of Victorian books, Christopher Hussey's working collection of books on art, architecture and art history, and a small collection of early guidebooks and similar material assembled by him. The collection of furntiure, ceramics and decorative objects is displayed as it was left by Betty Hussey in 2006.
