Founded in 1594, The Box Moor Trust manages some 480 acres of agricultural and amenity land for the benefit of the inhabitants of Hemel Hempstead and Bovingdon. A registered charity, the Trust's mission is to manage the estate in an environmentally sensitive manner for recreation, biodiversity, the provision of diverse opportunities for lifelong learning and to ensure that the enjoyment of such initiatives is accessible to all.
Fancy an adventure? If you enjoy exploring outside then you might like to try one of our Rucksack Walks.
What is it? A rucksack walk is a self guided walk with themed activities to do as you go. There are currently two themes to choose from: ~ Senses Walk ~ ~ Natural Art Trail ~
What's in the bag? In the rucksack there are 4 sets of activities to do, with instructions and the items you need to complete each activity. There is a map card with a suggested route and locations to do each activity. The rucksack has enough equipment for up to 6 people to do the activities together.
Where can I borrow one from? The rucksacks are available from the Box Moor Trust Centre on London Road. You will need to leave a small refundable cash deposit to borrow the bag of equipment.
After years of holding our annual public meeting at various venues around the area of benefit, we are excited to be able to host our 2014 meeting at our new headquarters. You are cordially invited to attend at 7pm on Thursday 24th April at the Box Moor Trust Centre in London Road to find out what has been happening during the past year and hear about future projects. You will be able to meet Trustees and staff, enjoy some light refreshments and get a chance to have a look around our beautiful new building. For those who do not wish, or are unable, to join us for the formal part of the evening, we will be opening our doors for an informal "meet and greet" from 2pm onwards, so feel free to drop in and see us.
The accounts of the Box Moor Trust for the year ended 30th September 2013 have been audited and are attached in PDF format (see below).
