The Treasures and the Collectors

Longford Castle – The Treasures and the Collectors, is richly illustrated and based on extensive scholarly research into the family archive. It tells a comprehensive story of the collectors who amassed the treasures and explores the acquisition and commission of the works of art. The book brings the story up to the present day, with an introduction and conclusion by the current owner, the 9th Earl of Radnor, himself a keen collector of art, to celebrate this remarkable house and collection. All copies of the book are personally signed by William, the 9th Earl of Radnor.

We recognise the historic impact of Longford Estate on the local communities and the responsibility we have today as custodians of the land and buildings we own. Supporting the next generation within our local community is important to us and we engage with the local community through village greens, allotment gardens, village halls, rural education access, and charitable donations.

Explore our community


Given the Estates close proximity to Salisbury, and it’s satellite villages, sensitive development opportunities to strengthen communities are considered. Where possible, the community’s requirements as well as design, local materials, site layout, landscape and conservation are considered to enhance the settlements.

& conservation

Woodlands are home to a wide variety of flora and fauna. The Longford Estate prides itself in managing its 770 hectares of woodland to give a commercial return and to provide habitat for wildlife. Plantations of evergreen, mixed deciduous, and native trees are all grown to provide diverse habitat and a range of end uses.
