                                                                              Our Aims - these aims remain the same

● To encourage and promote a greater interest in, and understanding of, the local environment and its history

● To protect historic buildings in the parish, and especially to conserve the character of the village of Thorncombe and of the other settlements in the parish

● To oppose unsuitable development in the parish

● To safeguard and enhance the countryside in the parish

● To support nature conservation in the parish

Many  villagers are unaware of the turbulent history behind the formation of the Trust and the reason for its creation.

Our archives have a wealth of information in the form of minutes, letters and press cuttings from the time.

We are starting to digitise these and hope they provide an interesting insight into the history of this long-running village organisation.
