The Friends of St. Mary's

The Friends of St. Mary's exists to secure the future of this historic house and its contents, together with its extensive gardens so that the house, together with its remaining gardens, can continue to be enjoyed by the many thousands of visitors annually.

Since its formation in 1991, the Friends have been instrumental in raising funds for restoration projects through membership subscriptions and organising events and functions.  The projects supported include:

bullet the installation of a shutting window
bullet reinstatement of the blocked-up window in the east facade
bullet display cases for the collections held at St. Mary's
bullet the rebuilding of the main Music Room window
bullet a new Music Room roof
bullet New bookshelves designed by Roger Linton for the Music Room.
bulletRestoration of the Victorian Glass House

However, restoration work is an ongoing task, and your help is urgently needed!
