Visitors to Ickworth House on New Years Day.

Stories of those connected to the Ickworth Estate during the First World War will now be told thanks to a £10,000 grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Chloe Woodrow, house and collections manager, said the estate was “delighted” to receive the funding, which she said would help uncover more about those connected to Ickworth during this time.

In the past 12 months, Ickworth’s research team developed the Great War project to highlight the impacts on the individuals, families and local communities of Ickworth.

The project will see the creation of a walking trail within the estate and house. The estate said it would include photographs, letter extracts, press articles and keepsakes, presenting an “intimate portrait” of Ickworth during the war.
