Gunby conservation team in front of house

Many hands make light work at Gunby

When the house is closed to visitors, the Gunby conservation team gives all the collection pieces a good 'deep winter clean'. It's a big help that for the last few years staff and volunteers from nearby National Trust places the Workhouse and Tattershall Castle come to clean too.

Car park update

Gunby Hall Estate and Gardens had to close for a few months this year in early spring. This was because the very wet weather meant the parking area was saturated and unsuitable for cars.
