Garden visiting is a national pastime and our finest parks and gardens are acclaimed internationally - yet they still have no statutory protection despite their vulnerability to modern pressures to change. Many fine gardens and parks have been lost or irretrievably damaged.
The Gardens Trust Movement is a direct response to this threat. The first Gardens Trust was founded in Sussex in 1980 and Warwickshire Gardens Trust was established in 1991. There are now thirty six county gardens trusts in England
Warwickshire Gardens Trust works within the old boundaries of the traditional county of Warwick. It aims to record and conserve gardens and parks of outstanding quality, and monitor threats to them.
Our aim is to raise public awareness of these gardens and parks, promoting the appreciation of them by lectures, visits and exhibitions.
We provide members with a programme of lectures, visits, seminars and newsletters.
