The National Trust is a registered charity founded in 1895 to look after places of historic interest or natural beauty permanently for the benefit of the nation. It is independent of government and receives no direct state grant or subsidy for its general work.
It is one of Europe’s leading conservation bodies protecting through ownership, management and covenants over 252,000 hectares of land of outstanding natural beauty and over 700 miles of coastline. It is responsible for historic buildings dating from the Middle Ages to modern times. It is dependent on the support of its 3.4 million members and its visitors, volunteers, partners and benefactors.
Greys Court is a picturesque Tudor house with a delightful series of walled gardens nestling on a tranquil hillside on the edge of the Chilterns, surrounded by beech woods and sheep-grazed pastures.
