Welcome

Welcome to the Moor Pool Heritage Trust (MPHT) website.
The MPHT is a registered charity (number 1148252) born out of the Moor Pool Residents Association in 2011, formed specifically to acquire the community facilities for the benefit of the local and wider community. Following this success, the Trust now strives to protect and preserve Moor Pool for the benefit of future generations, but also to ensure it raises awareness of its importance to the wider public.


The Vision

  • Conserve and protect the key elements of Moor Pool Estate’ s heritage
  • Develop our educational offer for schools and colleges
  • Expand our facilities, activities and services to the wider community
