National Trust and English Heritage

Since 2011, Steph and I have been enthusiastic members of the National Trust (NT)

In 2015, we also became members of English Heritage (EH)

We visit as many of their properties as we can each year, always a good reason for an outing.

For obvious reasons, we have visited more properties closer to our former home (north Worcestershire) in the Midlands than elsewhere. And, as we ticked off these local ‘low hanging fruits’, so to speak, we had to travel further afield to experience somewhere new. Now living in the northeast of England, there are fewer National Trust properties than further south, but sufficient for day trips. And English Heritage properties do seem more numerous.

In 2015, we toured Scotland, and with our reciprocal membership in the National Trust for Scotland, we visited four sites.

In 2017, we spent just over a week in Northern Ireland, touring National Trust sites all around the Province.

In 2018, we spent a week in Cornwall, taking in properties in Somerset and Devon on the journey south, and on the return.

And, in April/May 2019, we spent a week in East Sussex and Kent.

Here are the NT and EH places we have visited and, for most, I have written a story on this blog. Each property is shown on a region map as either a NT or EH logo.

Click on a logo to open links to a blog post, the NT or EH web sites, and a photo album of my own photos, although I haven’t yet completed uploading all the photo albums, and I still have to blog about a few places.

In any case, here is an alphabetical list (with links), by region, of the properties we have visited:
