Open Carriages Appeal After being in service of 50 or so years, our four open carriages now need replacing. The expected cost for each carriage is £50,000 - our target is to raise £200,000 altogether. The work will include new bodies and refurbishing the chassis for a more comfortable ride. We'll also make the carriages wheelchair accessible so even more people can enjoy riding in them. Please visit the Open Carriages Appeal Page to find out more and how to donate.
