Support our campaign for Wentworth Woodhouse
SUPPORT OUR CAMPAIGN FOR THE FUTURE OF ENGLAND'S GRANDEST COUNTRY HOUSE WENTWORTH WOODHOUSE IN YORKSHIRE
A race is on to raise funds to preserve Wentworth Woodhouse, one of the grandest stately homes in Britain, by placing it in a new charitable trust which will open it to the public.
So far £3.4m has been pledged towards an acquisition target of £7m. SAVE Britain's Heritage which initiated the successful campaign to rescue Dumfries House is now urgently seeking a matching sum to enable the purchase to go ahead.
Wentworth Woodhouse is a marvel of English architecture, one of the largest and most impressive of all 18th-century country houses, the seat of a great political dynasty and the home of a Prime Minister.
SAVE and its partners have helped initiate the new Wentworth Woodhouse Preservation Trust (WWPT) to serve the following purposes:
1. To preserve the house and grounds on a long term sustainable basis with extensive public opening;
2. To find sustainable and sympathetic uses for those parts of the property not open to the public;
3. To raise funds both for acquisition and repairs and other essential works.
