£1,680raised of £5,000 target by 47 supporters

    Weʼve raised £1,680 to aid the relocation of the top floor shower room at Kinnersley Castle.

    Funded on Friday, 28th April 2017

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    The relocation of the top floor shower room is of great urgency, as below the current location lies an ornate and historically significant Elizabethan ceiling. It dates from Circa 1580.
    The current plumbing system is in a critical condition and if left, would have cause irreparable damage.

    The ceiling is mentioned in many books for its unusual designs, which include some intriguing references to John Dee, many green men, as well the locally important Vaughn Family.

    The project is in progress. We have so far demolished the old shower room, as well as removing the top section of the old lift shaft in preparation for the new shower and loo. We have a builder working onsite and various specialists/advisors helping with the project as this is not quite as simple as going down to B&Q and choosing a suitable suite.

    We have found a few fundamental elements of the building that require attention, including some specialist roof timber repairs, and major plumbing overhaul. The new shower will have its own energy efficient supply of hot water, reducing energy costs.

    A second loo will be installed on the floor below it to increase capacity, and the previous show room site will be restored to reveal elements of the original architecture, uncovering interesting features and returning the corridor to its original proportions.

    The end result will be a glorious shower room and loo for the benefit of all those people who love this unique castle and take pleasure in the events held there.
