Charlecote's tackroom project

Tackroom at Charlecote Park

As part of our £2.2 million infrastructure project, visitors will gain access to an area of the property known as The Woodyard for the very first time.

The Woodyard space will be converted into our new restaurant area and funds are in place to enable us to do this over the next 2 years.

However, within this historic working area there are beautiful stables, tiled loose boxes and a utilitarian slaughter house. These buildings have been used in recent decades as much-needed storage and working space.

How the raffle will help

Over the next 5 years, our raffle fundraising plans are to open up each of these buildings, showing our visitors how the working estate functioned on a daily basis.

We are in the early stages of compiling more information on specific tasks and costs associated with this exciting project. We would be happy to keep any group up-to-date with written information or a tour of the spaces as our plans develop.

In the first year

For 2018 we plan to raise £10,000 to finish the final stages of conservation work on the neglected tack room and have this historic space open daily.

The raffle funds this year will enable us to carry out work on the range so that we can light a warm and inviting fire. The space will be warmed up for our hard-working volunteers and make this somewhere our visitors want to linger to find out more.

You could win too

If you'd like to buy a raffle ticket - or two - with a chance of winning exciting cash prizes, do look out for our volunteer raffle ticket sellers. Alternatively, just ask in Visitor Reception on your way in or out, where they also have raffle tickets available.
