Woodchester Mansion, Woodchester - Stroud

Mansion c1854-68 incorporating a magnificent private chapel. The Woodchester Mansion Trust was formed in 1989 to do a continuous programme of conservation and display of the uncompleted Gothic-style masterpiece. In 1991 a protective scaffold was built to cover the leaking roof of the chapel. The scaffold is now decaying and unsafe. Other adjacent roofs then developed serious faults. The east range roofs and north range chimneys have just been repaired with Historic England and Historic Houses Foundation grant aid but the chapel and other roofs are steadily deteriorating.
