National Trust

 In 1895, three philanthropists, very concerned about the impact that industrialization and uncontrolled development  were  having in their country  (Britain) , decided to create this organization to which they gave the name of “National Trust”.

 


- Canon Hardwicke Rawnsley
- Miss Octavia Hill
- Sir Robert Hunter

For over 100 years, this trust has protected, managed and opened to the public  over 350 historic houses , gardens and ancient monuments. Also  factories , coastlines , beaches , forests , woods, heaths , marshes , farmland , islands , castles , archaeological sites , nature reserves , villages and pubs.

 

The Trust now has over 3.7 million members and 60,000 volunteers.
More than 17 million people annually pay an entry fee to visit their properties, while an estimated 50 million visit their outdoor land preserves. 
One in ten museums in England , Wales and Northern Ireland are managed by this organization and is the largest owner of agricultural land in the country.
We appreciate the support they gave us at the beginning of our project.
