We want our workshops to be as accessible as possible. Please include details of any access needs or special learning requirements your child has in the booking form. If necessary, we will be in touch with you prior to the event to discuss individual needs. If your child requires 1:1 support, we would ask that a parent or carer accompanies them to the workshop to provide this support and help them get the most out of the session. Please confirm this at time of booking. 

Getting here 

There is no parking on site, the building is located in the centre of Calverley, on Woodhall Road, so when dropping off, there is ample on street parking in the surrounding area. Please park considerately for our neighbours. 

Donating to The Landmark Trust 

As a charity, the Landmark Trust relies on donations to support our work. We couldn’t have rescued over 200 Landmarks without the support of people like you. Your support saves historic buildings in danger of being lost forever and makes them available for all to experience and enjoy. 

Your donation could help train the craftspeople needed to restore buildings like this, or it could offer opportunities to young people to experience history first-hand, through our open days and free stays for study groups. 

We would be delighted if you felt able to add a gift to your booking today. We can’t wait to stay in touch and show you the difference your support has made. Thank you!
