Turn End Trust (formerly Turn End Charitable Trust) was established in 1998 to promote the integration of building and garden design; enable public access to this and other examples; and, after bequest by the Aldingtons, to conserve and maintain Turn End, its garden and associated buildings.


Turn End Trust ...

hosts a number of educational, creative and public events relating to aspects of the house and garden to a wide range of visitors.  Since 2014, this has included open afternoons, guided walks of the garden, horticulture classes, creative workshops and a sculpture exhibition. Until then, Turn End and its garden were open occasionally for private visits by specialist groups.  Lord Carrington, Lord Palumbo and architect Richard Murphy are Patrons.

The Trust has a Friends Scheme which aims to increase opportunities for public appreciation of the site, and to create networks of supporters and volunteers across the community to carry it into the future.  If you are interested in becoming a Friend (Individual, Joint, Lifetime or Corporate), a Volunteer or would like to support the Trust in some other way, please navigate to Get Involved to find out more information, or contact the Trust directly by email or telephone.
