The Bridford Trust is a charity, established in 2001, with the main aim of instigating and developing appropriate recreational, environmental and conservation projects within the parish of Bridford for the benefit of all. In pursuing this aim the Trust works closely with Bridford Parish Council and the Dartmoor National Park Authority.
