Family Fun


The places that make us

As police officers, Stuart and Rebecca know that finding quality family time with their two young boys can be hard. Working shifts or at weekends means that any time together is precious. At Dunham Massey in Cheshire, their favourite local place, they can escape hectic working lives to play with their sons and create treasured family memories.

Biomass Project at Dunham 

Dunham Massey is installing a new biomass boiler in an effort to move away from oil, and onto woodfuel. This is part of the National Trust's renewable energy investment programme to reduce reliance on fossil fuels. We hope to have it up and running in summer 2019.
