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.

Stray/Lost Dogs and Dangerous Dogs

The District Council's Environmental Health team handle enquiries about lost dogs or stray dogs. Their telephone number is 01954 713000. See their website for more details on what to do if you have lost your dog, or if you have found a stray dog. It is a legal requirement that every dog in a public place must wear a collar and tag with identification. This enables anyone who has found a stray dog to contact its owner.

Dangerous dogs should be reported to the local Police. Under the Dangerous Dogs Act 1991 if a dog is dangerously out of control in a public place or in a private place where it is not permitted the owner and the person who was in charge of the dog at the time is guilty of an offence.

Dangerously out of control means "any occasion on which there are grounds for reasonable apprehension that it will injure any person, whether it actually does so...". The dog does not have to have injured anyone.
