Friends Group

The Friends of Pitzhanger Manor & Gallery & Walpole Park was originally established as Walpole Friends in 2009 and has recently changed its name to clarify it support across the board.

The Friends Group is very active and has given major support to the Park and to the early stages of the Pitzhanger Manor & Gallery restoration.

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. We are delighted that we have already raised £6,000. If you would like to contribute to the appeal please contact or download the donation & gift form here
