    Reviews of Delapre Abbey in Northampton

    Delapre Abbey venue information

    FoDA was established in June 2001 to protest against plans by some within Northampton Borough Council to sell-off Historic Delapre Abbey (founded 1145) to a developer and as such, lose this valuable and much loved community resource forever.

    The resulting campaign to ‘Save our Abbey’ generated much public interest from as far a field as Australia and resulted in FoDA gaining an initial membership of some 1600 people opposed to selling the Abbey.

    Since 2001 FoDA has been working with Northampton Borough Council, Northamptonshire County Council, English Heritage and many others to return the Abbey, its gardens, parklands and lake to their former glory.What began as a local protest group in 2001 was recognised by the Charity Commission in 2006 and granted Registered Charity status (number 1113979).

    We are now working in partnership with a number of local and national organisations to preserve the Abbey and its surrounding as a community resource for all to freely enjoy. A grant from The East Midlands Development Agency in 2007 has enabled us start restoring the first of 4 Victorian greenhouses and to establish a tea room at the abbey.

    As the greenhouses are completed, we hope to grow organic produce within them for use on the Tea Room menus and for sale to the public.Monies raised will fund our continuing work on the gardens and grounds.
