Stowe Gardens appeal
Stowe Gardens was once Europe's most influential landscape garden. We need help to rebuild its grand temples and heroic statues for us all to enjoy
How the appeal adds up
- The National Trust acquired the landscape gardens in 1990
- We need £2.5 million to return the gardens to their original state
- Approximately 500 lime mortar repairs are needed for the temple’s façade
Rebuilding Stowe's lost treasures
Help open the doors of forgotten temples
The Temple of Friendship has been in disrepair since a fire in 1840. Help us repair the damage so you can step through the imposing doors again.
Help restore a world of myths and heroes
Your gift could help us replace the missing statues with faithful replicas and restore the Grecian Valley.
Help repair broken monuments
With your help, we hope to work with skilled conservators to recreate the Gothic Cross’s unique Coade Stone – so it can once again stand proud.
