JDD has completed a range of projects for The National Trust.

Our first project for the Trust was at Mottisfont Abbey in Hampshire, where - in the context of a comprehensive business plan - we helped the property team discover the real reasons why visitors seek out this special, tranquil estate on the banks of the River Test.

Subsequent projects included:

Thomas Hardy Country: a detailed study of the area of Dorset most associated with Thomas Hardy and his novels. This part of the county - though renowned for its natural beauty and literary associations - is undercelebrated and visitors find it difficult to locate the Hardy sites.

Blickling Hall: JDD’s study was designed to cover all aspects of the visitor experience and facilities, and has identified new ways to deliver an excellent day out for the visitors who come to the house and gardens each year. It also considers the needs of those who come for functions, special events or just to enjoy the fresh air of the 4,700 acre estate.
