FREE entry is being offered to a National Trust property in Worcestershire famous for its landscaped grounds and 'secret airbase'. 

Free entry for all is being offered at Croome near High Green, near the M5, by the National Trust as a way of promoting history and heritage.

The opportunity to visit Croome comes as it opens its doors for free for heritage open days. Visitors can take advantage of the opportunity between September 11 and 15.

Croome was home to the Coventry family from 1592, later becoming a World War II secret airbase, a boys’ school, and UK headquarters for Hare Krishna before being acquired by the National Trust in 1996.

A spokesperson for the National Trust said: "This rich and interesting history will be unwrapped during Heritage Open Days with a series of free volunteer-led tours.

"The tours include the Panorama Tower open day, airfield walks, garden tours, boys school tours and Red Wing tours. 

"When the 6th Earl of Coventry inherited the Croome estate in 1751, he collaborated with Robert Adam and Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown who were amongst the best new talent of the day. They created the house and parkland you see today with its historical buildings, lakeside and woodland walks, views to the Malvern Hills and serpentine river."

With about four-fifths of its collection absent, the rooms, many with 18th-century plasterwork and fireplaces, are instead used to present temporary exhibitions and installations.

Exhibitions currently on show include: Marcus Coates: Conference for the Birds; Thomas Bewick: Looking Closely, Threads: My Happy Place and Robert Adam: bookcases display.

Chantelle Williams, Visitor Operations and Experience Manager at Croome says: “Croome has such a varied history, and we are looking forward to showcasing it during Heritage Open Days.

"Our volunteer led tours cater for all interests - whether you prefer to hear about our incredible ‘Capability’ Brown landscaped parkland or take a tour around the Red Wing which is normally closed to the public, there is so much to learn and all for free from September 11 to 15."
