A PEACOCK and peahen have been added to the attractions at the National Trust’s Seaton Delaval Hall in Northumberland in line with the vision that the late owner Lady Hastings had for its gardens.

Hall property manager Judith Cashman, said: "We know that Lady Hastings wanted to introduce peacocks to the garden at Seaton Delaval but after she became unwell nothing happened about it. We’re pleased to be able to carry forward her vision for the gardens she was so passionate about."

The trust ran a competition with visitors to the hall to name the birds and received over 150 entries.

The winning names were Salvador and Dali.
