The health and safety of our visitors, staff and volunteers is paramount, and therefore in light of the most recent government recommendations, we are closing as of 20th March, until further notice.


Your support as visitors, friends and donors is more important now than ever. We have substantial ongoing overhead costs that will need to be met despite our loss of income from visitors and events.  Accordingly, we would be very grateful to any of you who feel able to make a donation, however small, through the donation page on our website under SUPPORT US. Please add Gift Aid if applicable, as that also helps!


Thank you for your understanding and support in these difficult times for all of us and wish you and your families good health.


We will be reviewing and monitoring the situation and will keep you informed. We look forward to being able to welcome you back as soon as we are able to reopen.


Best wishes


Chairman & Trustees, Oglander Roman Trust.
