Colchester and North-East Essex Centre

The Colchester and North-East Essex Centre was founded in 1979. We have more than 400 members drawn from Colchester and the surrounding areas – from Walton on the Naze in the East, Coggeshall in the West and Sudbury to the North.

The Centre exists:

  • to promote the work of the National Trust.
  • to enable members to derive more pleasure from their membership of the National Trust, and to enrich their understanding of its work and other aspects of our heritage.
  • to raise funds in support of National Trust projects.

Members enjoy a varied programme of talks, outings, lunches and other social events, and short holiday breaks. These are advertised in the Centre's Newsletter and on our website.

We support our local properties - Bourne Mill in Colchester, Grange Barn and Paycocke’s in Coggeshall - and we make annual donations to other properties, usually in the East of England.
