Croome Court is glorious yet faded. Step inside and you'll find a house needing a bit of a helping hand. The ground floor and the basement are open but not the top two floors due to structural issues above. The house cracks, bends and bows at any opportunity, leaks are aplenty and we won't even mention the problems with Robert Adam's first ceiling. Now we have the house in our care, we have grasped our chance to save this incredibly beautiful and interesting place.
We have successfully applied to the Heritage Lottery Fund for a £1.8 million grant which adds to a further £3.2 million raised from generous donations from our visitors and grants from charitable trusts. This means we can repair and reservice the house so it will be safe, secure and usable. That's not all we're doing, however. We want Croome Court to be a completely different experience altogether and create innovative ways of telling Croome's stories.
