Lyndhurst’s collections include a diverse and unique collection of costumes and textiles related to nearly every owner. The bulk of the collection is in the form of dresses and luxury goods owned by the fifth owner, Anna Gould, who bequeathed Lyndhurst to the National Trust in the 1960s upon her death. For more in-depth information about Anna and her clothes, visit the online version of the past exhibit: Defying Labels: New Roles, New Clothes.
