Geocache Description:

This is a nice place for a picnic!I once lived close by and spent a lot of time fishing at near here, but never took advantage of the walks, to be honest I never knew about them, (probably wouldn’t have cared about them at that age either!!) I do now thanks to geocaching……enjoy.

The estate was the property of the Acland family who had lived in Devon since the 12th century and acquired Killerton at the time of the Civil War. Later additions to the house almost conceal the unpretentious central block built for Sir Thomas Dyke Acland in 1778-9 by the Essex architect John Johnson. This was originally intended to be replaced by a grandiose mansion by James Wyatt. The magnificent stable block at the foot of the drive, with its elegant cupola rising above the splendid pedimented archway, is a far better monument to the talent of Johnson. The Victorian chapel was designed in 1840 for the 10th Baronet by C.R. Cockerell. In 1942 Killerton House and its estate was given to the National Trust by Sir Richard Acland Bt.
