More information about National Trust
National Trust is a UK charity, first founded in 1895 to ensure historic spaces would be maintained for generations to come. Passionate about the preservation of history, today it strives to protect the condition of historic houses, gardens, mills, coastline, forests, woods, fens, beaches, farmland, moorland, islands, archaeological remains, nature reserves, villages and more. On top of preserving these historical sites, the National Trust also facilitates tours and viewings to the general public in order to educate and enrich their knowledge of the UK’s incredible history. National Trust also carries out creative restoration on sites that are too old, empty or no longer in use. One of their projects is the Lincoln Stables in Clumber Park - with the charity’s help, it was eventually restored and turned into a discovery and exhibition centre. Moreover, National Trust runs a lot of different preservation projects – just one example is a project dedicated to the preservation of ancient trees including a 1200 year old tree known as Old Man at Calke in Derbyshire. If you are interested in becoming a member of this organisation, a monthly fee will allow you to enjoy benefits like free entry and parking at over 300 historic houses, gardens and countryside and coastline spaces. You will also receive a handbook and three magazines every year. The National Trust is also passionate about food & farming, energy & environment, nature & outdoors, art & heritage, transport & tourism as well as land use & planning for Britain’s future.
