Chirklands Association

A view across the Chirk Castle gardens from the roof

The Chirklands Association has strong ties to historic Chirk Castle. If you would like to support the National Trust locally and want to make your membership more enjoyable and effective, Chirklands is for you.

During the winter months we organise talks covering a wide range of subjects. In the past these have covered topics such as travel around Wales by water, visiting India and living there as a bride in the 50s, the history of Hallowe’en and many more.

Celebratory lunch and Summer party

In the winter we usually have a celebratory lunch, and in summer a lovely Summer evening Party is held at Chirk Castle with the kind permission of the General Manager.

Our visits are in the summer months and have included train and canal journeys, visits to museums and other National Trust properties. In the autumn we arrange a short break to an area of Great Britain where we visit many places of interest.


Membership is open to all National Trust members and volunteers, drawn from a wide area surrounding the castle. We are a friendly group offering a warm welcome to new members.
