Restoration project

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.

In June 2014, Pitzhanger Manor House was awarded a full heritage grant of £4.42million from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) to restore Sir John Soane’s historic country home.  A bid for just under £500,000 has also been submitted to Arts Council England which would help to fund the works to the gallery.

The project’s aim is to restore Soane’s architectural vision, reveal Pitzhanger Manor’s rich history, make the building more accessible and upgrade the gallery, as well as improve visitor facilities to create a world-class heritage and arts attraction.

The council is working closely with the Pitzhanger Manor Trust to implement the project.
