Darent Cray National Trust Association

Do you live in the Bexley, Dartford or North West Kent area? Are you interested in making the most of the National Trust near you? If so join your local group to enjoy special interest talks, visits, holidays and other social and fundraising events. You’ll also be helping a great cause – local groups support the work of the National Trust and raise hundreds of thousands of pounds every year for our conservation and access projects around the country.

More About the Association
  • History

    Formed in 1981 the Darent Cray National Trust Association gives National Trust members in the area an opportunity to be more closely associated with the work of the National Trust and to raise money for specific projects.  Meetings are held regularly every month at St. John Fisher Hall, Bexley. 

  • Activities

    The Association runs a varied events programme including weekend breaks, daytime outings, theatre trips, monthly walks and lectures. We also run occasional quiz nights, holidays, picnics and an annual Christmas lunch.

    The Association works closely with, and has made donations to, sites at St. John’s Jerusalem, Emmetts Garden, The Red House and Ightham Mote.
    Meetings are held regularly every month at St. John Fisher Hall, Bexley. 

  • Walks

    We have an active walking group. Walks are normally held on a Sunday, at least once a month. Most walks are fairly local, with a few starting further into Kent. Others may take us into Greater London or to places of interest in Central London. Distances vary from 2 ½ miles to 7 miles. A voluntary contribution of £2.00 per person is collected at the end of each walk and the money collected is currently going to the National Trust's Neptune Coastline Campaign.
