securing the farm for future generations
Cogges Heritage Trust is a registered and independent charity. The Trust receives no regular government or public funding but relies on the income it can generate from visitors, from grants we can secure and from the generous donations of people who want to ensure Cogges is preserved and accessible for the enjoyment of the local community and visitors from further afield.
Your donation will help the Trust to care for this remarkable, ancient farmstead and to develop new and inspiring ways for people to enjoy and learn about West Oxfordshire’s rural heritage, farming and food production. Your gift, however given, can make a real difference.
Please donate to keep 1000 years of history alive in the heart of Witney.

Cogges: Next Steps is a programme of capital works and activities to improve the experience for our visitors and volunteers and create and even stronger connection with the local community. Over the next 2 years you’ll see new displays and activities in the Manor House and across the site, the Barley Barn turning into a warmer, weather-proofed space for schools and adult activities, an archaeological dig in the meadows, improvements to the café and entrance courtyard, and so much more. All made possible with a grant of £901,400 from the National Lottery Heritage Fund and the generous support of donors.
