The story of Wellington Monument is one with many ups and downs. It has been redesigned, rebuilt and struck by lightning, twice. Yet this landmark has become a much-loved part of local life. Find out more about the restoration programme, how such extensive repairs came to be needed and why we are still fundraising to protect it.
The project to repair the monument will cost £3.45m,
and so far we've raised a total of £2.95m. You can donate to help us raise the remaining £500,000 here.
