About the Trust

The primary purpose of the Trust is to administer, manage and maintain the property and land we manage for the benefit of the people of Looe.

This land and property includes owns open areas such as the East Looe Beach and Seafront and the Wooldown, as well as buildings, including the Old Guildhall and Gaol, which houses the Museum, the “new” (1878) Guildhall and a number of other properties.

The Trust is responsible for the maintenance of all these areas and buildings for the benefit of the community, now and into the future.

We have a small staff who keep the public areas looking attractive and conserve the buildings.

All of this can be expensive and is difficult to manage as we are fund our work mainly from leases and parking. These carefully managed funds are what enables us to do everything we do: from clearing the seafront; to repairing the Guildhall tower.
