Our Vision

“to protect the people’s park, house and heritage, for now and for the future”


We believe in Swindon – its history, its future and most of all; its people. Lydiard House and Park is one of the town’s most significant heritage assets. The Trust will embrace the ethical duty hel d by its current curators to manage, operate and develop the estate for the public benefit both now and into the future.

Our intentions are not only to protect and maintain the Park and House, but to manage it with a surplus, whilst at the same time guaranteeing free access and, by carefully and respectfully enhancing existing attractions and adding new features, increasing the enjoyment experience for all visitors.
