National Trust – For ever, for everyone.
We’re a charity that looks after special places throughout England, Wales and Northern Ireland for ever, for everyone. This includes 775 miles of coastline, over 248,000 hectares of land and over 500 historic houses, castles, ancient monuments gardens and parks and nature reserves and we need your support to help us to continue our work protecting and opening up special places for ever, for everyone.
As an independent conservation charity, we’re dedicated to looking after Bath’s Prior Park and conserving its Georgian history. The next project in our ongoing restoration journey will be around the 18th-century dams.
Time has taken its toll since these structures were built in the mid 1700s, and the dams now need major and expert attention. Working down the garden from the bridge, the middle dam needs the most restoration. The middle lake has already been emptied to take the load off the dam and to allow it to be fully restored and then the middle path reopened. A small cascade – one of Allen’s original features – will also be reinstated here, and the lower dam is to be strengthened.
With your support we can restore the dams, reinstate the paths and refill the lakes, so visitors can enjoy tranquil reflections once again.
Join our Bath Half Marathon team and we will send you a brand new National Trust running vest and fundraising pack. You’ll get support with your fundraising and training as well as discounts from our partners at Cotswold Outdoors for all your kit needs.
