The National Trust

The National Trust

Over time, and during my row around the coast of Great Britain, I will be adding to this collection of National Trust themed photos, for use by students in projects and presentations about management of the land and historical buildings. For places they might like to visit, and for understanding the role of organisations in relation to tourism and geography in Britain. Please leave me a review and I will send you any other resource of your choice for free (contact me: office@oceansproject.com). Check out my other resources at my shop: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/sarah277 Let me know if you have any resource requests and I will tailor make a resource for you.
