An overarching objective of the Yorkshire Gardens Trust is to raise awareness of the importance of historic parks and gardens in Yorkshire. The Trust's conservation subcommittee have a breadth of expertise and meet regularly to assist, where possible, with the conservation and management of these unique assets in our County.
We do this in three ways:
The Committee maintain a presence at the Yorkshire Historic Environment Forum, and support its objectives, in order to maintain a high profile for historic parks and gardens in Yorkshire and to keep up to date on current heritage issues. They also advise on the restoration, repair and regeneration of Wentworth Castle and Stainborough Park, through providing a nominated representative to the board of trustees of the Wentworth Castle and Stainborough Park Heritage Trust,
