The Harley Foundation 

The Harley Foundation is a charitable trust which was set up in 1977 by Ivy, Duchess of Portland, to encourage the enjoyment of the visual arts and celebrate the handmade.

The Harley Gallery and Foundation are named after Edward Harley, who married Lady Henrietta Cavendish Holles, heiress to Welbeck, in 1713. Edward Harley was one of the greatest bibliophiles and collectors in British history – developing an extensive fine and decorative art collection and a manuscript collection which helped found the British Library.

The Harley Gallery

The Harley Gallery opened in 1994 and was designed by local architect  Leo Godlewski, constructed within the ruins of the Victorian gasworks which were built by the 5th Duke of Portland. This grade one museum facility won a Civic Trust Award for Architecture and a Tourist Board Special Award for Excellence. The project was funded by The Harley Foundation and the European Regional Development Fund.
