Make your mark on Belton’s history
As Belton embarks on a vital restoration project to repair its one-of-a-kind boathouse, this is your chance to leave a lasting legacy. Sponsor a slate is an opportunity to write history and be part of the fabric of Belton’s boathouse for ever.
The fish-scale slate roof was lost in the decline of the gardens through the twentieth century. This year we plan to restore the riverside boathouse to its nineteenth-century glory and reinstate punting on the river; your donation toward a slate can make this possible.
Saving Belton’ Boathouse
The restoration project will reinstate the lost roof with 1250 hand cut slates. For the first time ever Belton House is offering you the chance to make your mark on history and support the fundraising appeal by sponsoring a slate. As a sponsor, you can choose the exact location of your slate and inscribe it with a special message or dedication.
For a limited time only
Choose your slate; make your mark, draw a picture or sign your name. The slate will then be placed on the roof in the location of your choosing.
Want to ensure your name is remembered forever?
By sponsoring a slate, your name will be listed in the Boathouse Supporters Book in celebration of your generous support and placed with the collection in the Library.
A gift that will last a lifetime
Sponsor a slate offers the perfect way to celebrate a special occasion, remember a loved one or to give an extraordinary gift.
Sponsor a slate
For just £25 you can make a mark while supporting Belton's boathouse appeal. Sponsor a slate at Belton's second-hand bookshop. You won’t have to wait long to see the impact your donation has made as works are due to start on site later this year.
