Who we are and what we do

We work to:

Raise awareness of Lancashire’s wealth of designed landscapes. They are our heritage!`
Research, record and protect these landscapes.
Monitor local planning applications.

Lancashire Gardens Trust 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 Gardens Trust which has over 7000 members.

Whilst most of our activity is currently focused on the post-1974 county, in the future we hope to develop research projects in those parts of ‘historic’ Lancashire that now lie in Greater Manchester and Merseyside. To do so we are looking for funding, volunteers, and support from local authorities.
