Programme



Unfortunately the number of locations we can stay at or visit is limited at the moment. This is as a result of the NT stopping Working Holidays and closing the basecamps, and staff changes have not helped. However we are doing our best to keep our name known and stay where we can to continue carrying out vital conservation work. So that is why the number of locations listed below is not as great as it used to be, but hopefully will improve.


Where a location is in a different colour this is a link to to Bunkhouse/Basecamp or Location with details and directions, and we are presently updating these. There may be changes throughout the year, and where known we will update the work sites or tasks, but note these may change due to weather or other jobs taking priority.

LWMNTV group Covid guidance Members have been emailed the updated Group rules relating to weekends and day tasks. The leader will resend this for weekends to those booked on event.

These are based on NT and Government rules and will be resent by the leaders to those going on events so if not a member then you will get a copy of them.

Numbers may be restricted by the NT, or if there are any Covid restrictions, and as such events may change or be cancelled if NT staff are not available. For the day tasks the meeting places will probably be at work site, so may need to get there rather than the local Basecamp, but leaders will advise nearer the time.

If numbers are low on an event please consider coming along to support us, and the work we do for the National Trust. If we have to cancel due to low numbers it may affect future bookings at that location.

How to book

Please click here to send an email to the Bookings Officer with your contact details (preferably a phone number), who will pass on your details to the leaders. Don’t forget to transfer the money if required. Members please see the latest email on events for details of how to transfer payment to bank account. If for a weekend with cost then please print off the booking form (should be able to complete online before printing) and send it with a cheque or postal order to the bookings officer at the address given on the form.

Otherwise print off the booking form (should be able to complete online before printing) and send it with a cheque or postal order to the Bookings Officer at the address given on the form. Any bookings not accompanied by payment will take second place to those who have paid, and if the event becomes full you will be placed on the reserve list.

The booking form is only to be used for events over two weeks away, otherwise please contact the leaders. If you are not a member, or do not have their contact details, then click here to send an email to the Bookings Officer with your contact details (preferably a phone number), who will pass on your details to the leaders.

You do not need to be a member of the LWMNTV to attend any of these events. If you pay your membership before attending a weekend event, we will send you a Free Event Pass worth £10 and valid for six months, as an encouragement to try one.

Please note that if you do not want to attend the whole weekend you are welcome to attend just one day. Please contact the Bookings Officer or Leader to let them know. Saturdays are best as we usually work approx 09:00 – 17:00, and on Sundays approx 09:00 – 12:30.
