Founded by the local community

The Gatton Trust

The Gatton Trust

An independent charity committed to conserving Gatton Park for education and public enjoyment.

The Gatton Trust was founded in 1996 by a group of people from the local community who were passionate about restoring the historic Gatton estate. Today, Gatton Park is managed by The Gatton Trust on behalf of the Royal Alexandra and Albert School. We continue to be inspired by Gatton’s beautiful landscape and rich history and our mission is at the heart of all we do. There are many opportunities to get involved as a volunteer, donor or supporter. We rely on this generosity to continue to restore Gatton Park for future generations.
