Greenfield Valley Trust
Celebrate and protect the past today for future generations tomorrow.
Opportunities now exist to make a difference and be part of this exciting venture. The Trust wishes to recruit three Trustees to its Board.
Greenfield Valley Heritage Park is a 70 acre site, extending from the A548 coast road at Greenfield to the town of Holywell. The site reflects the varied and very long history of the area. It contains some of the most significant and interconnected industrial heritage in North Wales and has a remarkable number of historic sites, including seven scheduled ancient monuments, plus a museum within its boundaries.
Our vision for the Greenfield Valley Heritage Park is that by 2025 it will be a regional exemplar in industrial and natural heritage management, providing quality open access for recreation and vibrant learning experiences for all. It will be welcoming, valued and enjoyed whilst its heritage is protected and its wildlife flourishes.
The Valley Trust is a registered company and charitable organisation, established to manage the Greenfield Valley on behalf of Flintshire County Council. This arrangement is via a funded management agreement, although the expectation is the Trust will work to increase the revenue through increased visitors and grants and will become self-sufficient over time.
