Caring for our collection is only possible with your help

Every penny we make on site goes back into our core purpose: caring for this special place to ensure that everyone can continue to enjoy it for years to come. Simply by coming for a visit you're helping us to re-plant hedgerows, look after our wildlife habitats, restore fading colour schemes in the mansion and fund our major projects like Attingham Re-discovered. Even your stroll in the park can help us in hundreds of different ways - not bad for a day out! If you'd like to go one step further and have an even bigger impact on our work, you can find out more about making a donation here.

 

 

 

The 'Attingham Re-discovered' project

Our re-discovered project transformed the dining room

Bringing our Regency mansion back to life and carefully conserving it is all in a day's work, and our 'Attingham Re-discovered' project has been doing just that since 2006. Rather than doing our conservation work behind closed doors, we aim to show you conservation in action and involve you in our discussions, so on your visit you'll be able to see where we've revealed past paint layers, watch as work continues to repair our roof, and learn about the decisions we still need to make.

 

Help us uncover the past

Sir George Trevelyan lead an unusual range of courses at Attingham

Sir George Trevelyan lead an unusual range of courses at Attingham

We're working to tell the forgotten stories of Attingham's years as an Adult Education College - and we need your help. From 1948 - 1976, Attingham was home to a range of unusual and pioneering courses covering everything from astronomy to beekeeping. If you have memories of Attingham during this period, or experienced life as a student here, our researcher Sharon would be delighted to hear from you.
