Welcome to the membership page! Did you know that nearly everyone in the UK lives within half an hour’s drive of a battlefield? Some, like Bosworth, Hastings 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. The fight to defend Bosworth battlefield is going on right now and the BattlefieldsTrust is in the forefront of that.


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!  (And Christmas isn't far off!) Let me know who you would like to buy it for and I'll send you our welcome pack to give to them. 


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

Also please let me know if you've moved, changed email etc.

  • You can pay by PayPal using the the button at the bottom of the page, bank transfer (account details on the membership form) or send an old-fashioned cheque. However, we would really like you to set up a standing order as it helps in cutting out a lot of admin!


  • The Battlefields Trust has reviewed its corporate membership offer to organisations and has decided to amend this for local societies and groups involved in promoting battlefields as historical and educational resources in line with its own charitable objectives. The Trust now offers all such societies free partner membership with the option to enhance the basic membership offer to realise additional benefits.

  • Please contact David to discuss the details if you are interested.


  • Rising postal charges mean that along with virtually all other small charities we have an overseas postage supplement of £12.
  • However we offer an e-version of the magazine which is sent at normal subscription rates. But if you wish to receive the hard copy and pay by cheque please just add £12 on to your normal payment. If by PayPal then just pay the overseas rate as shown. Please contact David if you would like to pay by standing order.



  • Our Life Membership rates are an attractive way of supporting the Trust and avoiding the tedious business of renewal! Pease pay by bank transfer (account details on the membership form), PayPal using the button at the bottom of the page, or send an old-fashioned cheque.
