Today Micklepage consists of a farmhouse, barn, barn chapel and grounds that are available to book for community and non-community groups desiring a communal rural space to meet, stay, play, reflect and work.
Since 1938 Micklepage has been a trust property that was originally held in connection with the Christian Community of St. Hilda and in keeping with the original ethos of its founders is now a registered charity, number 231027, managed and maintained by community trustees and council members called The Micklepage Trust.
The Micklepage Trust today carry on the work of the original members of the community who lived, farmed, and taught here. The community was founded to link town and country, with special emphasis on families from cities. This work now continues in a wider context. Groups from different backgrounds come for study, retreat, arts, prayer and away days.
Micklepage operates entirely on a not for profit basis where rental income is ploughed back into the properties to maintain and improve them and is solely maintained and managed by a small group of dedicated trustees, council members and other volunteers such as the working parties.
