National Trust Podcast

10:25 AM GMT+1 on April 7, 2024

    National Trust Podcast - A new series of the award-winning series looking at interesting stories related to their own properties and attractions. 

    Part documentary / part radio play, the first episode looks at Ferguson's Gang. They were an anonymous all-women group of activists who, back in the 1930s, raised money for the National Trust and sent them the money in rather random ways, from inside cigars to fake metallic pineapples.

    “The 1920s was a time when the English countryside faced significant threat from developers as no formal planning permission was required,” says the host of the series. In the end they saved cottages, a town hall and the Trevescan Cliffs in Cornwall. Quite a legacy.
