Support

The house has been saved by a dedicated team of workers, volunteers and generous donors. Now we are crafting its future.
As an independent charity the only way for us to share the stories of the house is to build up our endowment so we can continue to work with visitors, volunteers and our community.
By supporting us you are helping to share the house with everyone and tell its stories, forever. Donate now.

Supporters

Join our community of regular donors, funders and supporters who enjoy behind the scenes access, the latest research and special events. By supporting our endowment you are helping to us to deliver tours of the house, exhibitions, talks, workshops and community outreach.

Donations

In April 2021 National Lottery Heritage Fund matched every pound we had raised to create a £1 million endowment. Thank you so much to every single one of you that has helped by giving a gift, your time, your creativity and above all your enthusiasm. The endowment will continue to grow to craft a bright future for the house and its collections.
