Become a friend

We would love each visitor to the Magog Down to help us to look after this special piece of countryside by becoming a Friend of Magog Down.

Your contribution will enable us to keep this spot beautiful, today and in years to come. Read more on the Join us page, or simply complete the application form. Or, you may prefer to set up a Direct Debit which you can now do via CAF Online.








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

Project Help Invited

The Trustees will soon be looking to find a suitable solution to the practical question of how to charge for car parking in the future - to put in place when our current grant for Open Access expires in 2018. Researching and evaluating the possible mechanisms for doing this is going to be quite a major project, so we'd love to hear from any of you who would like to help with this?

This is a great opportunity to contribute to the community, and as a one-off practical project will enable a wonderful sense of achievement when the chosen solution is put in place. We think you'll enjoy working with the existing management team, and look forward to working with you! Get in touch by email.

Other positions

The Magog Trust has no employees, so there are no salaried positions available. (Practical work on the Down is largely carried out by contractors, and administration and book-keeping is also provided on a self-employed basis, which keeps costs to a minimum.)

We welcome Volunteers who are willing to give their time to help in various ways. See the Volunteering page for further information about the range of tasks that we would like help with.
