About Us

The London & West Middlesex National Trust Volunteers are an environmental conservation group, who perform practical conservation work on National Trust properties at weekends, throughout England and Wales. The group is a voluntary non-profit-making organisation.


Last year (2023) despite the lack of basecamps and less volunteers we completed several hundred volunteer hours for the National Trust. The top volunteers each gave up over 100 hours of their time for this group with some also volunteering with other more local groups to them.

The group, which was founded in 1977, drew its membership primarily from London and the Home Counties, but with moves and new members now has members all over Britain.


We have about 100 members, plus others who join us on events, from a wide range of backgrounds, age groups and skills. Our work parties tend to vary in size between 6 and 18 people.

In 2017 we celebrated our 40th anniversary with a Megabash and Barn Dance. We had over 50 volunteers out at Blackdown in Surrey for one weekend giving just over 400 volunteer hours. In the first 40 years the group has volunteered for over 200,000 hours for the National Trust.
