Support Nunnington Hall's 'hanging by a thread' appeal
Anyone who’s visited Nunnington Hall will have seen these three unique verdure tapestries. They’re part of the history of the house, first brought here by Sir Richard Graham, the 1st Viscount Preston in 1685. Unfortunately they will need to be taken off display if we don’t carry out urgent conservation work to protect them from the damage caused by light and insects.
- The tapestries were brought into the house in 1685 by the 1st Viscount Preston
- We need to raise £208,000 to restore all three tapestries
- The tapestries need 3985 hours of studio time to repair the damage
" Over time, the tapestries have succumbed to natural wear and tear, including light and insect damage. Since the house came into our care in 1953 we have done all we can to protect them, but they are now in urgent need of repair."
