Notes on the Geography of The United Kingdom: Kedleston Hall: Photo 7
At Curzon's death in 1925 the house passed to his nephew, the second Viscount Scardale. He himself dying in 1977 without a male heir, the house passed to a cousin, the third viscount. The cost of maintaining the house, along with the capital tax levied in 1977 on the death of the second viscount, induced the third to sell the house to the National Trust on condition that he and his family be allowed to continue living in the left-hand pavilion. This wasn't a reduction in the style to which they had become accustomed, because the owners had always lived there. The central block was only used on grand occasions, and the right-hand pavilion always housed servants and the kitchen.
