North Coast Association

Child at Mussenden Temple on the Downhill Demesne, County Londonderry

The North Coast Association was founded in 1985. Our objectives are to promote the National Trust locally, raising funds for its work and projects.

Join us

Most of the members live in the north coast region of Northern Ireland and we support a range of National Trust projects and appeals, such as the restoration of the walled garden at Bishops Gate, the Summerhouse at Florence Court, the gardens at Mount Stewart and raising the profile of Rough Fort, near Limavady, the first property acquired by the National Trust in Northern Ireland 80 years ago.

You do not need to be a member of the National Trust to join the Association.
