" The name ‘Clervaux’ reflects both the Trust’s connection to the fields, woods and becks around Croft on Tees and a medieval movement for reform and renewal that has equally deep Yorkshire roots.
"From the 13th century to the 16th, the Clervaux family were landowners around Croft on Tees. In 1999, a Clervaux descendent, Bill Chaytor, donated 33 acres along the Clow Beck to found the Clow Beck Eco Centre."
The management team is led by the Founder of Ruskin Mill Educational Trust (RMET), Aonghus Gordon, with 30 years experience in the specialist education sector. Tyll van de Voort - Land Manager has over twenty six years experience as a biodynamic gardener and a wealth of skills and experience in land work and social care.
