Work starts today on a £3.8 million project to repair an historic house near Bath.

The National Trust had to take action after water started leaking through the roof of Dyrham Park, putting the 17th century building and collection at risk.

The lead roofing and slates will be replaced throughout 2015 and visitors will be able to watch the work in progress.
