Help Royal Gunpowder Mills! Donate Coronavirus Survival Appeal We are sorry, but due to the Coronavirus situation we are not currently open to the public or taking school bookings. We thank you for your understanding in these difficult times and we wish all our customers well. We look forward to welcoming our visitors back in February 2021 for our exciting new season of activities and events. In the meantime, keep an eye on our website for news and follow us on Facebook and Twitter. 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.
