 LANCASHIRE GARDENS TRUST 

Promoting the enjoyment and conservation of Lancashire’s designed landscapes 

Lancashire Gardens Trust (LGT) is a not-for-profit voluntary organisation formed in 2007 and covers the present County of Lancashire and parts of Greater Manchester and Merseyside.  We are one of a national network of Gardens Trusts affiliated to the Association of Gardens Trusts which has over 7000 members. 

AIMS
Lancashire has a rich heritage of deer parks with veteran trees, half-timbered and stone halls, landscaped parks, ice houses, walled kitchen gardens, seaside promenade gardens, ha-has and boundary walls, beautiful gardens and many splendid public parks.

We promote an awareness, appreciation and enjoyment of these landscapes.  They are our heritage - our green spaces in an intensely populated county. 

We organise an annual programme of guided visits and lectures,  undertake research and recording of these landscapes in collaboration with others, and also keep an eye on local planning applications.

Many of us are increasingly aware of the wealth and richness of our landscape - we must cherish what we have and also look to the future.

MANAGEMENT
An elected Council of Officers manages the Trust and is developing a range of working groups.  At present these include:
