By joining the Friends of Lydiard Park you will be part of a large sociable group helping to ensure that this important part of our local and national heritage is more widely recognised, enjoyed and preserved for future generations.
We welcome your interest in Lydiard whether that’s in history, art and architecture, gardens and the natural environment, or simply because you love visiting the park.
By supporting the Friends of Lydiard Park you are helping the survival of this lovely country estate and local treasure. The park is a green lung for Swindon. Every year 800,000 people enjoy its countryside walks, woodland and lakeside views. Together, the house with much of its original contents, the surrounding historic landscape and Church of St. Mary’s, offer a unique heritage asset that any town or city would be proud of.
The Friends concern is the preservation, enhancement and promotion of Lydiard Park. We champion Lydiard in good times and occasionally hard times, when threats to its integrity arise. By becoming a member you are strengthening Lydiard’s public support and enabling exciting projects in conservation, museum collecting, research and education to develop.
