Saving Belton's Boathouse
At almost 200 years of age, to save this significant structure we need to raise £100,000 for works to restore the stickwork building back to its original 19th century splendour
How the appeal adds up
- This stick work building is the only 1 of its kind cared for by the National Trust.
- The restoration will place 1,250 fish scale tiles on the boathouse.
- Help us reach our £100,000 target to save Belton’s boathouse.

" The boathouse is an intrinsic part of Belton’s wilderness and historic garden design. Its restoration will allow us to recreate those lazy summer days punting on the river the family used to enjoy."
Why give to the National Trust
As a charity, we rely on the generosity of supporters to look after the historic buildings in our care. Not only do our supporters help to conserve beautiful homes and stunning gardens. They also ensure that future generations have places where they can be inspired by stories of the past, enjoy peace and time to reflect, and make memories to treasure. Your donation will go towards this project and other vital conservation work on our buildings at this special place. With your support, we can continue to protect the irreplaceable. For ever, for everyone.
