Support our work to preserve and strengthen Cornwall’s heritage for future generations.
You can join today from as little as £15 a year.
All over Cornwall, there are heritage sites that are uncared for and at risk – some are even lost forever. Your support means we can protect Cornwall’s most iconic and important historic sites, and offer universal access to these special places.
Cornish traditions range from gig building to wrestling to shanty singing and dancing. So many people value our culture that we need traditions, language, literature, arts, music and dance to continue to flourish and inspire the next generation. Help us connect people with Cornwall’s landscapes, stories and traditions.
Cornwall Heritage Trust is a small independent charity and our work to protect Cornwall’s unique heritage couldn’t happen without your support. By joining as a member, you can become part of the mission to ensure everyone can enjoy what makes Cornwall special.
