Protect Special Places appeal

Historic buildings damaged by damp. Coastlines hit by storms and erosion. Countryside and the nature that calls it home disappearing. The places we all love and the people protecting them need your support like never before

How you can help

To look after remarkable places such as Malham Tarn Estate, Lindisfarne Castle, Trevose Head and Knole, we often have to act fast. That’s why we have a flexible general fund, which we can access quickly. These funds are vital in supporting the ongoing work of our staff and volunteers, to enable speedy access to equipment or specialist skills without delay. By giving to this appeal you can support the passionate people who give their all to the places we treasure.

Why every donation matters

  • 200 million visits to our outdoor spaces each year
  • 775 miles of coastline to protect
  • £32 million spent on restoration in 2016
