Walpole Park and Pitzhanger Manor
Ealing Council is planning a major programme to restore and develop Walpole Park and Pitzhanger Manor House & Gallery. The grade 1 listed manor house is regarded as an architectural treasure and was designed and owned by the revered British architect Sir John Soane.
Walpole Park is a 12-hectare public park and is included in the English Heritage Register of parks and gardens of special historic interest, grade 2.
In July 2011 the council was awarded £2.4million by the Heritage Lottery Fund to help restore and preserve some of the parks historic features. The funding will be used over the next four years to support the councils commitment to protect and re-grow some of the parks original trees and plants.
In April 2012 HLF awarded a first round pass and development grant of £275,000 to Pitzhanger Manor. The funding will be used over the next 18 months to conduct surveys, consultation and activities and develop the proposals.
