The Trust's objective is to identify, conserve, and celebrate the heritage of the Willis(-)Fleming family in a coordinated and imaginative way. This heritage includes:

  • lives and work of family members;
  • the natural & built environment, and spirit of place, of the former family estates; life & work on the former estates, and the people who lived there;
  • historic objects, including those now dispersed or lost -- papers, artefacts, and monuments & memorials.
We undertake creative projects and programmes based on historical themes.

The ongoing work of the Trust includes:

  • preserving family & estate papers, and maintaining a united, accessible collection;
  • researching and recording historical information;
  • protecting objects relating to the family & estate history;
  • championing the care and maintenance of monuments;
  • raising the profile of the family & estate heritage.
