Annual Reviews

Each year we now produce an 'Annual Review' for Friends and Members, which incorporates a summary of our formal Year-end Report, plus what we hope are some interesting highlights of the year in question.

Covid-19 and visiting Magog Down - 12 May 2020

After reviewing the Risk Assessment, taking into consideration the Government Guidance of 11th May and making necessary arrangements, the Trustees are pleased to announce that the car park will re-open on Wednesday 13th May.

Also, after an absence of more than five months since its theft, the car park ticket machine is now back in operation, and there is a £3.00 parking charge for those who are not displaying an up to date "I'm a Friend" car sticker. This is still by necessity a coins-only machine; we are working on a cashless solution with renewed urgency.

Visitors are reminded to maintain social distancing with people not in your household, at 2m (about 6ft) apart throughout a visit to Magog Down.  Please keep dogs under control at all times, especially near other visitors, and on leads where requested.  Necessary precautions to prevent viral contamination should be taken when opening and closing gates, and using benches.

Enjoy your visit to Magog Down and do wash your hands on returning home.

Sawston Stomp, Thursday 10th October

Notice of Event: 1000 pupils to picnic on Magog Down!

As part of their Greener programme—encouraging a greater appreciation of our natural world, the value of sustainable living and the need to pursue a carbon neutral lifestyle– and Active Week—promoting the value of activity to the physical and mental wellbeing of all– Sawston Village College will be completing their annual "Sawston Stomp" on Thursday 10 October 2019.

This is a Sponsored Walk. Pupils will be walking from Sawston Village College across the fields in Stapleford and on to Magog Down. En route a mass litter pick will take place. Pupils will be arriving in their Houses – 250 pupils and 25 staff each – for lunch at the far end of the North Down.

Part of the money raised will be donated to the Magog Trust in support of this area and our mutual commitment to promoting the value of the natural world.


The Trustees of the Magog Trust are delighted to have given permission for this walk to take place.

Old Newsletters

Up until 2011 we produced a twice-yearly Newsletter, and you can still download copies of some of these here:

Spring 2010

Autumn/Winter 2009

Spring 2009

In 2011 the re-designed website was launched, and so the decision was taken to stop producing these Newsletters, and instead to use this website as the main means of communication for news and articles of interest.

This move away from a regular Newsletter meant that more of the Members' and Friends' subscriptions could be spent directly on the costs of upkeep and husbandry on the Down.

We would love every regular visitor to Magog Down to help support its upkeep by becoming a Friend. Read more on our Join Us page, and then complete the application form.
