APPEAL

The Society is making an appeal for £15,000 towards the restoration of the Cucumber frame at the Walled Kitchen Garden at Wollaton Park. Built in 1864, the original base of the frame remains and the aim of the appeal is to restore the Cucumber Frame to its original condition, by rebuilding the timber and glazed superstructure. 

To make a donation, please visit the DONATIONS page. Thank you.

===============================================================

Mission Statement:

The Society exists to protect and enhance the principal Conservation Areas which include the Village core and Wollaton Park. In order to do that the Society encourages historic research and seeks to encourage people living in all parts of Wollaton and Wollaton Park to learn more about the history of the area and thereby to help ensure its survival and conservation.

In order to achieve that, the Society holds a number of talks on local history during winter months and, in the summer, in addition to opening the Dovecote Museum, provides a number of guided walks around the area of greater Wollaton and visits to other historical sites of interest.
