Safestore and Pitzhanger Manor & Gallery Trust

Safestore has generously offered free storage space to keep some of the contents of Pitzhanger Manor & Gallery safe and secure while the building is restored to its former glory. We are currently in temporary offices in Ealing Council with little storage space, and so this offer is hugely appreciated. Safestore is committed to its community, helping charities all over the UK at little or no cost. It sponsors charity events with cardboard box donations, whilst its employees have volunteered in community projects. The staff at Safestore Acton were particularly lovely and went out of their way to help and make us feel comfortable.

Pitzhanger Manor & Gallery was designed in 1800 by Sir John Soane, one of Britain’s most influential architects. Soane was famous for accumulating an incredible, eclectic collection of artefacts at Pitzhanger, from Greek antiquities to Hogarth’s famous series of paintings A Rake’s Progress. He may well have appreciated Safestore’s help when he had to pick up his belongings from Pitzhanger following family problems. The site is currently closed whilst it undergoes a major conservation and renewal project to return the Manor to Soane’s original design and revitalise the contemporary art Gallery.
