National Trust

The National Trust was founded in 1895 to preserve the nation’s heritage and open spaces throughout England, Wales and Northern Ireland for the public to enjoy. It looks after coastline, forests, woods, fens, beaches, farmland, moorland, islands, archaeological remains, nature reserves, villages, historic houses, gardens, mills and pubs.

As a charity, it relies for income on membership fees, donations and legacies, and revenue raised from commercial operations.
