Conservation in Action - Historic Image Digitisation

This winter images from the archive at Sutton Hoo are going to be digitised in their entirety for the first time. The images, captured in 1939 by Mercie Lack and Barbara Wagstaff, provide a remarkable insight into the Great Ship Burial.

  • Booking not needed

Join us this January and February as we carry out digitisation work on archive images of the Great Ship Burial excavation. These images, captured in 1939, helped record this fascinating discovery.

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
  • Standard Admission

If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you a clear choice between the Gift Aid Admission prices and the Standard Admission prices at the admission point. It's entirely up to you which ticket you choose.

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:

  Gift Aid Standard
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
