Day 3 of the Viscountdown! Trist House




Welcome to Day 3 of the Viscountdown! Today is all about Trist House where one of the chapters is set. On p. 75 in the book, Lucien suggests that Valerian would enjoy a visit to Trist House to see the new landscaping being done.

Trist House is located in Veryan, very close to Truro and it was indeed renovated at that time by Samuel Trist, who wanted to improve the lands. Many of the items mentioned in the chapter as being 'plans in progress' for the landscaping did actually come to pass. Estimates guess that 1,000 pounds were spent on the landscaping renovations.
