Our work

The Vyne's roof needs your help

The Vyne Appeal 

Water is running in. Time is running out. Help us repair the roof so future generations can continue to enjoy this special place. Your gift today will help re-tile the roof, rebuild the chimneys, repair parapets and improve guttering so that rainwater no longer gets in during heavy rain.

Conservator Steve Clare re-installs Tudor stained glass at The Vyne

Tudor stained glass returned to The Vyne 

In February, The Vyne welcomed back one of its most precious attractions following months of conservation. With the chapel returned to its normal layout, you can now enjoy the full glory of the chapel’s exquisite Tudor stained glass.
