For those of you who (like myself) love the peace and quiet of a historic building or garden, but sometimes begrudge having to share this tranquility with other visitors, the National Trust recently released an album of sounds from various NT locations, which means you can have a little of the magic in your own home.

The album, curated by the brilliant Jarvis Cocker, contains sounds from the clocktower at Blickling Hall and footsteps through Ham House, among others.You can find out more about this album here. There is also an interesting article on The Independent website, although this mainly focuses on Cocker’s role in the project.
