Ickworth Uncovered at Ickworth

Over the next year, Ickworth is set to secure its future – with your help – thanks to a major new conservation project. Ickworth is embarking on a multi-million pound major conservation project which will see us heading up to the roof. The iconic Rotunda, the original vision of the Earl Bishop in 1795, has stood proud in the Suffolk countryside for many years. However, like any house, it needs support and protection to make sure it will stand for generations to come.

Building a future for Ickworth

The scaffolding which is now standing protecting Ickworth, took over two months to build. It is free-standing, so does not touch the building to protect the Rotunda. It is thought to be one of the largest and most complex scaffolding projects in the region.
