Volunteering

It was action by local volunteers that got the Great Barn opened as a museum in 1986, and it is the support of Volunteers that keep the site going today as Headstone Manor & Museum.

There are a range of ways in which volunteers can get involved, some roles are flexible and can be quite short, others are set to regular hours and can continue indefinitely. Volunteer roles include working as a steward in our Manor House, with our collections or education team or even as a gardener.

We regularly have projects and events for young people, please email education@headstonemanor.org for more details. We also welcome young volunteers, as part of their Duke of Edinburgh or as regular volunteers.
