Additional Trustees welcome

We are always open to enquiries from anyone who may wish to consider joining us as a Trustee of the Magog Trust. There is a surprising amount and variety of aspects involved in owning and managing our 163.5 acre parcel of land, so anyone considering this will need to be able to make time to get involved as required.

The Trustees all have the status of Directors of the Charitable Company. These positions are voluntary and as such no salary is attached, although reasonable expenses will be re-imbursed.

If you have any skills and experience in particular which you think would benefit the Magog Trust as a Trustee, and/or for further information, please email chairman@magogtrust.org.uk.


We occasionally get handed in items found on Magog Down, or get asked about items which someone has lost.  
Unfortunately we’ve had very little success in re-uniting items with their owners, so we’re now asking visitors rather than contacting us, please contact Sawston Police station at  4 Cambridge Road, Sawston CB22 3DG.
Opening times:

  • Tuesday: 5.30pm – 8pm
  • Wednesday, Thursday, Friday: 1pm - 5pm

Any significant items we get handed will be taken there.

UPDATED Announcement re coronavirus (COVID-19)

The car park to Magog Down is now closed, with effect from Tuesday 24th March 2020. The site remains open for access by foot or bicycle (please park your bicycle sensibly and then walk around the site).

Police guidance is clear that people should not be travelling by car to take their exercise away from home during these unprecedented times. This is supported by the Kennel Club. We recommend that our many hundreds of regular visitors take this opportunity while the streets are so quiet to enjoy exploring your local area: greet your neighbours (at a safe distance!), look around you and admire the architecture, and observe what flora and fauna is emerging in your street.

Essential maintenance work at Magog Down continues, so the entrance must be left clear at all times. Thank you.
