Erddig is a property that scores amazingly well in top 10 house polls. Now I like Erddig but I really don't understand how it is quite SO popular.
What I like is that there is so much known about the servants and this is well presented. Which perhaps explains its appeal.
The house was built between 1684-87. The Yorke family moved there in 1733 and remained until the house was given to the trust in 1973. The house was in structural danger after the collapse of a shaft from a nearby mine. The Trust obtained compensation from the Coal Board and the house was reopened in 1977.
and would you believe there was light rain??
