  • Provide public access to and enjoyment of Wandlebury Country Park, Coton Countryside Reserve, Cambridge Leper Chapel, Bourn Windmill and Hinxton Watermill.

  • Celebrate the past, respect the present and seek to influence the future.

People. We will inspire people of all ages to get outdoors and help them to enjoy, learn about and get involved with their local environment, heritage and culture.

Natural heritage. We will protect the green setting of Cambridge and its most valuable landscapes and we will enhance and connect them for people and nature.

Built heritage. We will protect, celebrate and improve the important built heritage of the Cambridge area.

Where do we work?

We are based at Wandlebury Country Park, on the southern edge of Cambridge. The operational focus of our work is Cambridge City and South Cambridgeshire District but the areas of concern for our strategic planning work include Cambridgeshire; Peterborough-Stansted Corridor; and Cambridge-Oxford Corridor. We draw our visitors, participants and membership from Cambridge, South Cambridgeshire and adjacent settlements such as Newmarket, Royston, Saffron Walden and Haverhill.
