Heritage Society

Berkshire Gardens Trust

The Berkshire Gardens Trust was founded in 2008 and is a member of the Association of Garden Trusts. We are proud of the rich heritage of historic parks and gardens, which we have here in the Royal County of Berkshire, and aim to identify, protect and promote this valuable heritage. 

The Mills Archive Trust

The Mills Archive was established in 2002 as a permanent repository for historical and contemporary material on traditional mills and milling, and to make that material available for public inspection and use in research and learning. It has rescued over 1 million documents and images that might otherwise have ended up in a landfill site.

Kennet and Avon Canal Trust

On the 11th August 1951 the Kennet and Avon Canal Association was formed, which became the Kennet and Avon Canal Trust on 6th June 1962, thus enabling charitable status. Together with the British Waterways Trust and the Riparian Councils, the Kennet and Avon Canal Trust aims to 'Protect, Enhance and Promote' the canal. Today the canal is usd by all from walkers to cyclists to boat enthusiasts.
