Keep Trelissick garden together

The National Trust has launched a fundraising campaign at Trelissick to raise £50,000 to replace the garden bridge, saving the only access to the woodland garden and Cornish apple orchard.

Bridging the gap

Trelissick’s bridge plays a vital role in your journey through the garden, linking its distinct areas together. Without it over a third of the garden would be inaccessible. With the help of highly skilled local craftspeople and contractors a bridge made of English green oak will take the place of the old one, providing a beautiful new feature to the garden. We need your help in raising £50,000 to ensure that access to the whole garden is preserved for generations to come.

  • We are raising £50,000 to replace the bridge
  • Over the course of a year 190,000 people cross the bridge
  • There has been a crossing since 1821 keeping the garden together

" The bridge is highly unusual as it is one of only a handful of privately owned bridges crossing public highways. This adds complexity and cost to the project as the bridge needs to reflect the character and spirit of Trelissick whilst also being able to withstand a collision with a speeding lorry!"
- Jon Cummins, Visitor Services and Enterprises Manager at Trelissick
