Coleshill Underground Second World War event is back
Coleshill Underground is coming back to the village on Sunday 22 September 2019 from 10.00am to 4.00pm.
We will be celebrating the 75th anniversary of the Auxiliaries being stood down from service. These brave men volunteered to act as an underground resistance to the threatened German invasion in September 1940.
An autumn woodland glowing with colour and rich with the smell of damp earth is a wonderful place to be. National Trust Ranger Chloe Bradbrooke suggests six mini wonders of nature to look out for on an autumn woodland walk.
Trees blazing with orange, red and gold, dappled golden paths, fluttering with falling leaves. It’s nature’s last hurrah before the long sleep of winter. Why not go out and enjoy the show at Greys Court, Waddesdon, Stowe and West Oxfordshire.
Coleshill's open afternoons start again on 8 April. On the second Sunday of every month, see Coleshill's restored mill grinding grain into flour and explore the secret underground bunker - a replica of the Second World War Operational Base on the estate.
Across the UK traditional building skills and rural crafts are in decline. The increasing skills shortage within the conservation sector means that knowledge is being lost, putting our heritage structures at risk.
Our Conservation Skills Programme based at the Model Farm is a hub for education and knowledge-sharing. With more than 1000 historic structures across 9000 acres, including in-hand forestry and river lands, we have a rich, diverse and beautiful training ground for historic building and rural skills development.
There are loads of friendly National Trust supporter groups in the Thames Valley. They help support our places like Stowe, Hughenden and Greys Court by volunteering and fundraising. They also get together for fun days out, holidays and lectures.

The summer may be officially over, but nobody told our gardens. They're still looking lovely in the September sun and in many places you can see (and taste) the kitchen garden produce being put to good use.
