The Land Trust is a British charity, based in Warrington, Cheshire, which owns or manages open spaces restored from derelict land for public benefit. Its vision is "to improve the quality of people’s lives by creating sustainable, high quality green spaces that deliver environmental, social and economic benefits".[1]

The Land Restoration Trust was created in 2004 to ensure that restoration projects for derelict land would have a long-term future. It became independent as The Land Trust in 2009/10.[2]
