Our work at Wimpole
As with any house and garden there is always some work to do somewhere to keep it weatherproof, to repair something and update the electrics or boiler and here at Wimpole it is no different, only on a larger scale.
Not just bricks

Funded by a DEFRAs Higher Level Scheme (HLS) grant is our vision of planting trees in the parkland. Following extensive historical research a full tree planting plan has been drawn up and approved, so the aim is to plant 1,000 trees in 10 years. This is usually completed over the Winter, so if you see tree guards springing up in the parkland this will be the next phase of tree planting.
Re-thatching the Great Barn
The Great Barn has been re-thatched and given a spruce up with new sedge and reed on the main roof and also new ridging. The other thatched buildings in the historical farmyard will be completed over the next few years.
Railings around the mansion
We have repairing and renovating some of the railings around the mansion and garden, you might see the work being completed on small sections at a time.
Painting the window frames
The north front of the Hall overlooking the parterre had its windows rubbed down, repaired and painted in 2017 and the South front was completed in 2018, this will weatherproof it for another few years.
