The Lionel Abel-Smith Trust (formally Wendover Community Trust) is a registered charity that exists for the benefit of the residents and organisations of the Parish of Wendover and the Moor Park estate.

It was created in December 1977 by the Lord of the Manor of Wendover, Lionel Abel-Smith, to commemorate the Silver Jubilee of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. With great generosity, Mr Abel-Smith gave cottages and a substantial cash endowment to found the Trust. He said then that he wished to create something for the benefit of Wendover and its inhabitants. His family had been the principal landowners in Wendover from the 1790s.

“Thanks to the incredible generosity of Lionel Abel-Smith Esq. the people of Wendover will greatly benefit for generations to come, long after we have all gone.” A. E. Mogford MBE
