Repairing the Boating Pond

Status: In progress

Recent condition surveys revealed that the original design of the Boating Pond and the use of materials like concrete and cement have caused significant problems. The stonework is deteriorating due to saturation and water was found to be continually leaking.

To stop further deterioration of the stonework, prevent contamination of the ground and stop the wastage of water, we took the difficult decision to turn off the fountain and rubber matting was installed for protection.

Since 2021, Port Sunlight Village Trust has been actively working with conservation advisors to identify the most appropriate solution. We are undertaking the long, complex journey to bring this beautiful feature back into use, however we know this will cost hundreds of thousands of pounds. From as little as a £5 donation, you can support this project.
