The regeneration of Wentworth Woodhouse is arguably the greatest heritage project of our generation. Over the next two decades, this exciting project will provide visitors with an opportunity to engage with the historic features, buildings and gardens in innovative, diverse and creative ways, providing access for all, not just the few.
The project will be a gamechanger for Rotherham and South Yorkshire, bringing economic, social and environmental advantages, and real tangible benefits to people’s lives. We are already providing opportunities for new jobs, training, upskilling, volunteering, academic study and work experience but with your help we can do so much more.
Wentworth Woodhouse Preservation Trust (WWPT) is a charity and relies on fundraising and its own income generation to undertake this huge project and open more spaces to visitors. Every penny really does count and your membership will help us achieve our ambitious plans to change people’s lives as we restore this great house and ensure its survival.
The enormity of the challenge ahead should not be underestimated. Your support is vital and we invite you to join us on this journey alongside other like-minded people in our Supporters’ Club.
Join us and make a difference, Wentworth Woodhouse belongs to you too…
