The William Scott Abbott Trust

About The William Scott Abbott Trust

The William Scott Abbott Trust (WSAT) is an educational charity committed to connecting people to agriculture through a variety of experiences in a diverse historic landscape.
Our vision is to create a thriving, innovative and enterprising education and rural skills centre of excellence.
Our mission is to inspire nature and promote farm and nature-based education.
Our aim is to connect people of all ages and backgrounds to the science, heritage and practical art of agriculture, and to illuminate the trail that leads from farm to plate.
Since 1964, WSAT has run Sacrewell, a 50-acre site, as a charity with the aim of providing an agricultural education for everyone, from school children to heritage enthusiasts.
Sacrewell provides opportunities to take the curriculum outdoors. Visits are made by school children of all ages from surrounding areas who enjoy the natural play areas the site provides, and who love to visit Sacrewell's rare breed animals.
