Projects in the pipeline

Since November 2019, NCBPT’s Board of Trustees has been developing strategies for the future use of the buildings in our care, with the following aims:

  • To ensure the preservation of The Folly, the Zion complex and Dr Buck’s House for future generations
  • To make The Folly and Zion sustainable for the long term
  • To renovate Dr Buck’s House to provide long-term rental accommodation and a gallery space
  • To generate income to enable the Trust to save other buildings at risk
  • To make the whole of The Folly accessible to all members of the public
  • To bring The Folly to life as a hub for local heritage and arts activity
  • To find a community use for Zion Chapel and Hall
  • To make a positive contribution to the local economy

The total cost of implementing these projects is estimated to be around £3 million and fundraising is under way. If you can help in any way, by making a donation or an in kind contribution of goods or labour, please contact us.
