Originally built in the late 1700s to house the Marquess’s 84 horses, the southern range of the Stables and the Riding School could be hosting large wedding parties and events for up to 600 people by 2027.
This year we are busy developing plans and funding applications to secure a new life for these special historic buildings which have also been used by the Lady Mabel College of Physical Education and as barracks for military personal during WWII.
Make a horse to show your support!
Wentworth Woodhouse Preservation Trust invites you to make a horse and contribute to a collaborative artwork in the Riding School and Stables courtyard at the end of the summer.
Together, we want to visually demonstrate to potential funders that our local communities and visitors want to see these buildings regenerated, and that people have helped us shape an engaging, inclusive and meaningful programme of activities, experiences and opportunities that EVERYONE can benefit from in the future.
