We are lucky to be supported by a community that has shaped the past of Blackden and is now developing its future.

From donors to volunteers everyone is welcome and there are some many ways to get involved:

  • donate to keep this unique place alive for future generations
  • join our volunteers and you could help visitors to familiarise themselves with Blackden or work behind the scenes weeding our beautiful garden or even making coffee!
  • be a benefactor
  • become a Friend of the Blackden Trust
  • participate in a course
  • Come on a tour or attend an event and bring your friends
  • Follow us on facebook (

The expertise of academics from universities across the country, the knowledge of local specialists, the enthusiasm of Friends of The Blackden Trust and the help of volunteers – all contribute to our research and teaching.
