The National Trust was founded on the 12th January 1895 by Octavia Hill, Robert Hunter and Hardwicke Rawnsley.
As the Trust reaches its 125th birthday, we share its celebration of famous British composers and the work it does to inspire a new generation.
Leith Hill Place in Surrey was the home of Ralph Vaughan Williams from the age of two until he was 20, when he went to study at Cambridge.
