Talk: Tackling the rot at Townend
Last year we embarked upon an urgent project to save Townend after we found wet rot in two of the house's main structural beams, come and find out what we discovered along the way.
- Booking not needed
- Free event (admission applies)
It was a difficult year, replacing damaged sections of 400 year old solid oak beams from a Grade 1 listed farmhouse is no easy task, but along the way there were some fascinating discoveries that we're excited to share with you. Find out what we revealed when we looked behind render and ceiling voids for the first time in hundreds of years, peeling away centuries of hidden history.

What is Gift Aid?
Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points. Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:
- Gift Aid Admission or
- Standard admission
If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you the Gift Aid Admission prices. But it's entirely up to you which ticket you choose. If you want the Standard Admission instead, just let us know when you come to pay.
Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid* — an extra 25 per cent — potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.
An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below: Payment of the additional percentage donation is entirely voluntary, so if you prefer to pay the standard admission please advise our reception staff at the till point.
|Amount paid by visitor||£11.00||£10.00|
|Tax refund from Government*||£2.75||£0.00|
|Total received by the National Trust||£13.75||£10.00|
*Gift Aid donations must be supported by a valid Gift Aid declaration and a Gift Aid declaration can only cover donations made by an individual for him/herself or for him/herself and members of his/her family.
