Examining the roof at Dyrham Park - we need 8,000 Welsh slates to repair it

We need your help

Dyrham Park contains ornamental gardens, rolling parkland and a 17th-century baroque mansion; inside is a collection of Dutch art, rare tapestries and delicate books. Yet behind Dyrham's beautiful exterior, its roof and walls are starting to deteriorate, putting these precious collections at risk. We urgently need your help to carry out essential building maintenance, repair and replace the roof and regulate the temperature on the inside.

Other appeals include raising funds to prevent further erosion and flooding in the Yorkshire Dales, raisisng money for our textiles appeal to look after a collection of rare and diverse textiles, for the Lake District to repair stretches of footpaths, Quarry Bank to help open up access to the property for the first time, and halting 600 years of decay and disrepair at Knole in Kent. Or you might wish to support our For Ever, For Everyone appeal which allows us to use the funds wherever the need is greatest.

Ways to give

There are many ways to support our work, from donating to one of our appeals, setting up a regular donation by direct debit, or by making a lasting difference by making a gift in your will. Contact us on 0844 800 1895.
