Why these places matter
Protecting the war memories on the summit of Scafell Pike
You'll be helping preserve this iconic mountain, its public access and valley paths and walls, supporting the work of our rangers and volunteers.
Celebrating Wellington's great victories
You'll be helping to save this Grade II* listed monument and transform the viewing platform with its stunning views across Exmoor and the Quantocks.
Reuniting Runnymede and Ankerwycke
You'll help to conserve the birthplace of freedom and build a new visitor area, providing space for storytelling, wildlife and 2.7km of new paths.
" No free man shall be seized or imprisoned, or stripped of his rights or possession, or outlawed or exiled, or deprived of his standing in any other way, nor will we proceed with force against him, or send others to do so, except by the lawful judgement of his equals or by law of the land."
Why give to the National Trust?
As a charity, we rely on the generosity of supporters to look after the outdoor spaces in our care. Not only do our supporters help to conserve beautiful landscapes and protect precious plants and wildlife. But they also ensure that future generations have places they can find freedom from everyday life, reconnect with the natural world and make memories to treasure. Your donation will go towards this project and other vital conservation work in the outdoors at this special place. With your support, we can continue to protect the irreplaceable. For ever, for everyone.
