Donate for our London Marathon Runners

Abney Park Trust are delighted to have runners in the London Marathon on April 28th to fundraise for our memorial restoration projects. We would like to thank Jim Grice and William Deamer who have both generously agreed to run for Abney Park. The restoration projects were voted for by visitors at our last Fayre and include cleaning the large Celtic cross at Abney House corner, or repairing the broken sarcophagus near the Church St entrance. Read further for their bios and donation links. Please support our runners - we appreciate their energy and wish them luck!

Isaac Watts' picture appeal

Do you have photo of Dr Issac Watts' lost right hand? Ideally a close up of the hand and lower sleeve, but a distance shot in good light would also be helpful!. The picture is to help ensure the replacement is as accurate as possible and you may help reveal further detail than pictures and engravings already held.

Please send any pictures to info@abneypark.org or drop them into the Visitor's Centre near the main entrance (with contact details to have pictures returned).
