Ickworth Uncovered at Ickworth

Over the next two years, Ickworth is set to secure its future – with your help – thanks to a major new conservation project. Ickworth is about to embark 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.
