Cleveland Association

Visitors sitting in the garden at Beningbrough Hall, North Yorkshire.

The Cleveland Association, founded in 1981, is open to all National Trust members, volunteers and members of affiliated organisations.

Members come from the Teeside area together with South Durham and the most northerly parts of North Yorkshire. The Association particularly looks to support Ormesby Hall and the countryside estates of Co. Durham and North Yorkshire.

What we do

The objectives of the Association are to bring together people with a common interest, to broaden members' knowledge of the Trust through a programme of activities, including:

  •     lectures
  •     outings and social events
  •     organise fund raising activities
  •     and to provide a local/regional/national link


Membership provides an opportunity to attend Association activities; meeting people with a common interest and exchanging views with them about the National Trust and other matters.

Members also benefit from newsletters published three times a year, reviewing recent activities and including information about forthcoming events.
