Glastonbury Abbey Appeal - Rescue Our Ruins

Rescue Our Ruins was launched in May 2012 with the goal of raising half a million pounds to save our ancient ruins - this equates to a pound for every person living in Somerset.

The Final Chapter supported by

Chubb Bulleid Solicitors Cooper & Tanner

February 2016 sees the launch of The Final Chapter to raise £100,000 to cover the cost the major conservation and enhancement of the Abbot's Kitchen and the Lady Chapel, Crypt and Galilee.

If we hit our original target of £500,000, the remaining monies will go towards the conservation of the North Wall.

Since 2012 we have:

  • Carried out urgent repairs to the walls of the Lady Chapel and Galilee and West Door of the nave, opened up the well, added a new walkway and balustrade and replaced the paving
  • Conserved the masonry and stone lantern of the Abbot’s Kitchen and introduced heating, lighting and new displays
  • Carried out extensive archaeological recording to learn much more about the history of the abbey

We have raised £1.1 million in grants and donations but still need to find the final £100,000 to pay for the work achieved so far. This equals £274 per day for 365 days.
