Support us

The hall was saved by the support of the local community in the form of a preservation committee in the 1930’s and then restored in the 1950’s. Today we are supported by the Friends of Washington Old Hall and dedicated volunteers, making it a vibrant and interesting place to be.

Our gardens are small and contrasting from the formal parterre to the wildlife haven in the nuttery. We have different opportunities to gain experience and help maintain our award winning gardens.
