A la Ronde Roof appeal
Water is coming through the roof and causing damage to the internationally significant, one-of-a-kind shell gallery. The roof needs to be made watertight, the gantry boarding's around the gallery need to be replaced and the windows need updating to help protect the gallery from light damage. Once the roof is watertight we’re continuing with vital conservation work to repair the shell gallery and bringing the stories of A la Ronde to life both in the house and estate.
- Over 30% of the shell gallery has already been lost
- The roof will cost £106,000 to repair
- The 16-sided scaffolding costs £45,000 to construct and build
