August at The Blackden Trust

In August 2018 The Friends of the Blackden Trust (FTBT) are celebrating ten years of supporting us here at Blackden. During those years the Friends have extended their group to include members far and wide, raising money to help the Trust preserve the past and inspire the future. If you are interested in finding out more about the Friends, please contact Joyce Evers. Secretary FTBT at

*During August, we have two public tours to be held on the 8th and 18th of the month.

Blackden July 2018

June was a busy month at the Blackden Trust. We ran five public tours and a Stars and Stones day which combines a morning visit to Blackden followed by lunch and an afternoon at Jodrell Bank. The next Stars and Stones day is on the 22nd August. Booking details for this popular event can be found at

At the Trust, we are delighted to welcome two new volunteers to our friendly team. One visitor came on a general tour and one on a Stars and Stones day. Both were captivated by what they discovered at Blackden and wish to contribute their own individual knowledge, skills and enthusiasm to the Trust by giving some of their time to helping us. For further information on volunteering, please contact
