Today marks two years since the fire at Clandon Park. In the intervening two years, a dedicated project team, with the support of numerous volunteers, specialists, and contractors from around the country, and the world, have achieved much.
The Clandon Park project: a timeline
Since the night of the fire on April 29 2015 we’ve been through many extraordinary moments, both tough times and triumphs. The Clandon Park restoration project represents one of the most significant and ambitious projects the National Trust has ever embarked upon. An enormous undertaking, we now have the opportunity not only to show our respect for the heritage of the past, but also to create a new legacy for the future.
Here you can follow a timeline of events from the early days of the project, through each major milestone, right up to the present day. We’ll continue to post developments here and update you with our progress on the journey towards our ultimate goal, welcoming visitors back to Clandon Park.
