122 years after we were founded we have reached 5 million members. Thank you for helping us look after special places for ever, for everyone.
5 million members: how we got here
We now have five million people helping us to care for 775 miles of coastline, over 248,000 hectares of land and over 500 historic houses, castles, ancient monuments, gardens, parks and nature reserves.
From a charity with only 100 members when we were founded in 1895, we have gone from 4 to 5 million in the last 6 years alone. Thank you everyone for supporting our cause.
