The 18th Century, grade I listed landscape of Stourhead is special. And one of the many reasons for this, is the incredible collection of built features throughout the gardens and wider estate.  You may have marvelled at the garden from the Temple of Apollo, been transfixed by water reflections in the Grotto, or taken in the breathtaking views from the top of King Alfred's Tower.

These structures now need our undivided attention.  They are starting to literally fall apart.  It won't happen overnight, but by acting now, we can conserve these special features for the future.  Some have been standing for over 250 years.  Please help us to help them stand for another 250.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity. So it’s the most efficient way to donate – saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

So please dig deep and donate now.

In loving memory of Sheila on her birthday. She always loved - or at least endured - a good walk around Stourhead! Have a good one wherever you and Annette are.

I grew up visiting Stourhead gardens as I have family nearby. Such a beautiful place. I visited again this year and seeing all the restoration work going on I felt inspired to donate.

As a family we have visted Alfred's Tower since about 1968. We gave the young children the task of calculating the number of bricks used on the outside wall! I cannot remember the answer!
