The Welsh Historic Gardens Trust (WHGT) is a national organisation campaigning to save historic gardens and parks from neglect, indifference, insensitive planning and planting, for future generations.

Welcome to the new WHGT site

We are updating the WHGT site. A change at our old hosting company has forced an early transition to this new site. We will be continuing to add content to this site but, for the moment, it is a work in progress.
Some links will take you to the old site. Those pages will be transferred as soon as practical.
