Gales force Tyntesfield to shut
A POPULAR visitors attraction is closed today (Friday) because of the high winds.
Tyntesfield House in Wraxall, run by the National Trust, will not open today because of a fear over safety. The decision was taken because of concerns over the strong winds damaging trees and causing debris to fall.
Although the house, grounds and gardens are closed, Home Farm, with its shop and restaurant at Tyntesfield is still open to visitors.
The estate is required to close if wind speeds top 40mph and today the weather forecast suggests they will reach about 55mph.
Linda Coode, Operations Manager at Tyntesfield, said: “We have an open location with panoramic views across to the River Severn, which leaves us vulnerable to high winds. Trees are in full leaf at the moment and visitor safety is our priority.”
