Why are we running

We have set ourselves this challenge to support fundraising for the Prior Park dams appeal.

Since the National Trust started caring for Prior Park back in 1993, the aim has been to restore the garden to it's 1764 splendor at the time of creator Ralph Allen's death. The next project in the continuing restoration of the garden will be around the historic dams at the lower end of the garden. Time has taken it's toll since these Georgian structures were built in the mid 1700s, and the dams now need major and expert attention.
