About The Trust  

The Staffordshire Gardens and Parks Trust was established in 1992.
The Trust's aims are to promote the education of the public on matters connected with the arts and sciences of designed landscapes. To preserve, enhance, create and re-create for the education and enjoyment of the public, any designed landscapes, existing now or in the past, in and around the historic County of Staffordshire
.
For these purposes the Trust's remit covers not only the present administrative County of Staffordshire (including the City of Stoke on Trent) but also parts of the Black Country.
The Trust is a charitable organisation run by a Council of Management whose membership over the years has comprised a mix of landowners, landscape architects, garden historians, archaeologists, local authority officers and knowledgeable amateurs.
Membership, by annual subscription is open to individuals, family groups or corporate organisations.
