Wentworth Woodhouse is arguably the most challenging and exciting regeneration project of our generation.

- To preserve the house and grounds on a long term sustainable basis with extensive public opening;
- To find sustainable and sympathetic uses for those parts of the property not open to the public;
- To raise funds both for acquisition and repairs and other essential works.
