North Berwick Trust was set up as a charity in 1973 to support recreation, education and local amenities, alongside ‘the relief of suffering of residents’.

The Trust was funded by the then North Berwick Town Council to acquire 103 acres of land at Mains Farm. The land was safeguarded by the Trust for many years and during the year to November 2016, a portion of this land was sold to Walker Homes, Cala and Cruden Homes. By April 2019, the income from this sale will total £16.7m with 50 acres of land  remaining in Trust ownership.
