Coast & countryside

Did you know we own and manage over 250,000 hectares of land of outstanding natural beauty and almost 750 miles of coastline?

 During the 2013/14 winter storms, coastal sites we look after on the north Norfolk coast were some of the worst affected. Thanks to the local community and volunteers, working with the Environment Agency and Natural England a huge amount has been achieved.

Protecting our coast

Last winter's storms caused huge damage to many of our coastal properties. Thanks to you we managed to make repairs and kept them open for the summer visitors. With potential storms again on the horizon we're asking for help safeguarding against more bad weather.

Is this the tallest oak tree in Britain?

One of the oak trees we care for, at Stourhead in Wiltshire, could be the tallest in Britain. Watch as we measure the tree to see if this really is the case.
