Video: Mount Stewart house and gardens to be reunited

The National Trust has bought 900 acres of land surrounding the historic Mount Stewart house and gardens in County Down at a cost of £4m. The deal, which follows years of negotiations with the estate of the late Lady Mairi Bury, will increase the size of the attraction ten-fold. It will lead to the opening up of 20 miles of walking trails, as well as the restoration of Georgian buildings. The purchase reunites the house with its demesne, decades after the gardens and house were gifted to the National Trust. Credit: Discover Northern Ireland
