Welcome to the membership page! If you're reading this it might be because you're interested in knowing more about joining The Battlefields Trust. Did you know that nearly everyone in the UK lives within half an hour’s drive of a battlefield? Some, like Hastings, Bosworth and Culloden, are familiar to most of us whereas others are relatively unknown. Yet the battles fought on them all played their part in shaping the way that we live today.


Please join us today so that you can help to ensure that these unique historical sites are preserved for everyone to understand and enjoy, both now and in the future. Have a look at the page and don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.


Don't forget that membership of The Battlefields Trust makes an ideal present!  Let me know who you would like to send it to and I'll send them our welcome pack.


Renewals! If you want to renew by setting up a standing order please  go to the Members-Only section and use the form there.
