The Friends

The Friends of Pitzhanger Manor and Gallery and Walpole Park is a voluntary membership group that supports both the manor and the park . It formed in 2009 in response to Ealing Council’s plans to restore Pitzhanger Manor and Walpole Park, and provide a local stakeholder voice and grass roots input into the projects. For the latest information about the group please visit www.walpolefriends.org or email your details to chair@walpolefriends.org.

The Friends have launched an appeal to conserve the statue of the goddess Minerva, located in the staircase hall at Pitzhanger Manor.  For many years this elegant statue, installed by Soane when he built Pitzhanger Manor in the early 1800s, has been coated in cream paint. We would like to restore her to her former glory and the bronze finish of Soane’s time, to set off the decorative paint scheme that is being recreated in the hall. The cost of doing this is £18,000. If you would like to contribute to the appeal please contact chair@walpolefriends.org
