The mission of the charity is to preserve, manage, research, conserve and display for the benefit of the general public and of the nation at large the historical and archaeological heritage of the Royal Gunpowder Mills, Waltham Abbey in the form of ancient monuments, listed buildings and the natural aspect features and bird, animal, tree and plant life.

It is a huge mission, carried out by a small number of staff supported by a large number of dedicated volunteers.

In support of our mission we have education programmes, visitor programmes, volunteering programmes  and liaise closely with Historic England, Natural England and our other key stakeholders.
