Can you help us to Save Ruskin's View?
Due to continuous and unpredictable erosion from floods, the riverbank is unstable, making the viewpoints and footpath unsafe.
The area had to be urgently closed to the public in September, 2021.
Invaluable public access to the cemeteries of St. Mary's Church, The Glebe Field, Cockpit Hill, The Motte, and the Rugby Club have all been shut off.
Residents and visitors have lost a beloved community space which has become intrinsic to both our community's heritage and wellbeing.
Loss of a major heritage attraction has a significant impact on our local economy.
Without securing funding needed to restore and stabilise the area, Ruskin's View and the footpath will be permanently lost.
We need to raise over £1million to reopen access to the view. We need your help to do this. Please donate today or contact us to find out more about how you can help.
