Save Shamrock appeal
It isn't possible at this current time to say when the Cotehele Shamrock project might resume. Like most charities we've been hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic. We've therefore had to defer, or in some cases stop, a large proportion of planned project spend in order to cover essential maintenance costs. We thank everyone for their patience and support during these difficult times.
- We need your help to raise £120,000 for Phase 2 of Shamrock's repair work
- Shamrock's last major restoration took place in 1974 when she first came into National Trust care
- Shamrock was the last Tamar sailing barge ever built and is 1 of only 2 that are still sailing

Why give to the National Trust?
As a charity, we're dedicated to conserving our nation’s natural and human history for generations to come to enjoy. From preserving the historic buildings in our care to protecting nature and wildlife in outdoor spaces, by donating to our General Fund appeal, you'll help us to act quickly to look after special places. Donations also help us release match funding from various sources including corporates, grant-giving bodies like the Landfill Communities Fund, and Charitable Trusts. This means every pound you give helps us raise even more for vital conservation work.
