The National Trust was founded on 12 January 1895 by Octavia Hill, Sir Robert Hunter and Hardwicke Rawnsley. 

Hill, a social campaigner for housing and open spaces joined forces with Robert Hunter, who had saved Wimbledon Common and Epping Forest from development, and Hardwicke Rawnsley, founder of the Lake District Defence Society. 

Together they formed a corporation "for the holding of lands of natural beauty and sites and houses of historic interest to be preserved intact for the nation’s use and enjoyment.” Over 120 years later, the National Trust remains “for ever, for everyone”.
