About Wargrave Heritage Trust


Wargrave is by common consent one of the most beautiful villages in Berkshire with a unique character, formed by its heritage of noble buildings with a backcloth of rolling countryside of farms and woodland.

Its most precious buildings are surely the the historic church in its tranquil Mill green setting, the Woodclyffe Hall and Woodclyffe Hostel.
The Hall and Hostel were bequeathed to the village, by Mrs Harriette Smith together with a number of other benefactions.

The preservation of these and other public buildings and amenities essential to our community life, is placing an increasingly insupportable burden on existing resources.

The Trust was formed at the instigation of two public meetings of Wargrave residents  during 1992.

The public meetings accepted that the burden should be borne by the whole village community.

The Trust was therfore formed to harness these village resources to preserve and improve the public buildings and other amenities that came within the within the Trust's remit.

The trust is run by  eight Trustees, four of whom are individual villagers, two representing the Parish Council and St Mary's Church PCC plus a Treasurer and Chairman.

Wargrave Heritage Trust was accepted for charity registration in 1994.
