Springhead Trust

Mill Street,
Fontmell Magna,


The Springhead Trust’s mission is to encourage people of all ages and backgrounds to experience and value the rural environment, and to learn about the sustainable use of natural resources; as well as to conserve the buildings and gardens as a special place for education, enjoyment of the arts, music and rural culture.

Our main areas of work are:

·         Providing environmental education and personal development by running day and residential visits, particularly for children and young people

·         Promoting the conservation, protection and improvement of the natural environment, by following organic principles and using renewable energy technologies

·         Enabling people to enjoy and learn about the arts, by staging productions in our open-air theatre, holding exhibitions, plays, concerts, workshops and classes

·         Giving the public opportunities to enjoy and learn at Springhead through open days, volunteering, and providing spaces for community use

·         Conserving and enhancing the buildings, gardens and grounds of Springhead for future generations
