Dukes Meadow Trust

Who we are

About Dukes Meadows Trust.

Dukes Meadows Trust led the regeneration of the meadows to create a beautiful riverside park. Starting in 2000 the trust has raised over £1 million to create fabulous play areas and has planted hedgerows, wildflower meadows and an orchard to increase the biodiversity of the park.

Hailed by local government magazine as a model of sustainability, the trust has established successful social enterprises, including the Food Market, that generates revenue to fund ongoing work and maintain the improvements made.
