Help Royal Gunpowder Mills! Donate Coronavirus Survival Appeal Royal Gunpowder Mills is now closed for the winter. We look forward to re-opening in 2022. Please keep an eye on our website. Please Donate Where your donations go While closed and without visitor income, we need to carry on our work protecting and undertaking essential maintenance for this historically important and beautiful site. We need to keep the Charity afloat so we can resume our programmes of volunteering, education, events and study days and get back to bringing in income again. After that necessity, any donations remaining will go towards the protection and repair of buildings, waterways, nature conservation and wildlife. Please do consider a donation! Thank you! We are very grateful to all current and past donors for their support. Keep an eye on our website for news and follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
