Trust opens up new office at historic site
A NEW office has been opened by the National Trust at Abbots Leigh.
The new site houses a team of experts who provide support to a range of Trust places across North Somerset and Gloucestershire.
The hub is based at the historic Leigh Court which was chosen for providing modern office space within easy reach of Bristol and good road links to National Trust sites.
Leigh Court was built by Sir Philip John Miles, a Bristol ship owner, sugar baron and banker, who commissioned architect Thomas Hopper to build a Palladian mansion.

Russell Ashfield, National Trust manager said the rented space would give a vibrant base for Trust staff.
Mr Ashfield said: "Leigh Court gives us a modern and spacious office for the whole team and manages to combine a modern design in an historic building. Our team provides a range of essential support services to our properties including surveyors, visitor experience and marketing experts. Many already lived close to Bristol and being close to the city but able to easily reach all of our places was seen as essential."
The team has moved from Eastleigh Court in Warminster which will remain the home for the SW Wiltshire Hub in the short term.
The Trust ultimately plans to sell Eastleigh Court where planning consent allows a change of use to return it to residential use.
