About Wardens Trust

Wardens Trust was set up by Richard & Elspeth Gimson in 1991. Their vision was to offer recreational and outdoor facilities to disabled children and adults in this unique area.


Our Main Hall is situated on the cliffs between Thorpeness and Sizewell in a secluded site with access to the beach and a camping area. Over the past two decades we have built up the site to their current standard, and where we hope to deliver an experience that benefits elderly people, people with disabilities and their carers.

We believe that offering recreational and outdoor facilities and arts-based creative activities for disabled children and adults will be liberating and life enhancing. Overlooking the North Sea, our cliff top site means the beach is instantly accessible, in addition to the 4.5 acres of woodland surrounding the Hall.

The following people help to make Wardens Trust the great facility it is:
