Upper Thames and Ridgeway Association
If you are a National Trust member or Volunteer you will be most welcome to join the Upper Thames and Ridgeway National Trust Association.
The area we serve stretches from the Cotswolds in the North to the Marlborough Downs in the South and includes Cirencester, Lechlade, Highworth and Swindon.
What we do
Formed in 1983 our membership is rising steadily and now numbers well over 400. These members give enthusiastic support to our programme of talks, outings, holidays and other events which are publicised in our mailings which include a bi-annual newsletter.
We are unique in having the NT Headquarters building, Heelis, in the middle of our area. Several of our members work there as volunteers in a variety of roles.
Over the years we have made significant financial donations to NT projects. Recent beneficiaries have been Lacock Abbey, Buscot and Coleshill, Hidcote Manor Garden, Heelis and Chedworth Roman Villa.
