Be a Volunteer

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, as well as many other things.

For more information, as well as role descriptions, email the museum on
