Octavia Hill and the National Trust

In discovering the world of the National Trust I thought it sensible to begin at the beginning with the creators.  Octavia Hill is one of the few names that really made an impact on me from school history lessons.  Interesting to find out that she was one of the three founding members of the National Trust alongside her thoughts that it was essential to ‘life’ to have access to parks and public spaces.  Not how I imagined the National Trust would have been formed at all.
