Arson response at Dunston Staiths

Arson response at Dunston Staiths

Why we need your help

Early on Saturday morning 16 May, Dunston Staiths suffered a major arson attack that has severely damaged 5 frames of the precious structure.

This campaign (launched by Staiths Friends, volunteers who support the restoration project) is to raise funds - firstly to carry out works to make the structure safe, increase security and then to restore public access.

Seasonal opening has been delayed this year due to coronavirus. We still hope to hold our well loved Staiths Food Market and Dog Show, subject to public health considerations, in the Summer.

Fundraising also continues to enable repairs, including installing the new deck planks that funds were raised for in 2019. We have been overwhelmed by the public response to this disaster, reminding us all of the importance of our heritage to all our futures.
