About Us

We were formed in 1984 and now have a couple of hundred members living all over the area around Oxford and Abingdon. We have 6 talks a year on a huge variety of subjects, meeting at 2.30pm on, usually, the third Tuesday of January, February and March and then again in September, October and November. Talks take place at Trinity Church Hall, Conduit Road Abingdon and last about an hour, with time for questions.

The summer is a good opportunity to get out and visit houses, towns and attractions without having to worry about transport, which is usually provided. Our very active Visits Committee arrange trips as far afield as the Midlands, the West Country and London, with convenient stops in interesting places. And there is always time for a cuppa or a good lunch.

Some visits are very local, such as to an Oxford museum, for example, and in those cases, people come either on public transport or by car. Members are very good at offering lifts to those who would otherwise have difficulty coming to these.

Membership of the Abingdon & District National Trust is open to everyone, but there is an additional entry charge if we go to a National Trust property for those who are not members.

Membership runs from April to March and costs £15 for a couple at the same address and £10 for single membership. This entitles you to free entry to all talks and priority booking on all visits. We also issue the membership with 3 Newsletters a year, detailing the talks and visits programmes and updating the membership with any news that affects our organisation.  The membership form can be downloaded and sent to the membership secretary.

Committee members are always available to take comments or suggestions and we welcome all and any input from our members. We also encourage them to join us on the committees, not too arduous a task and with hidden benefits.  To find out more please email secretary@abingdonnt.org.uk.
