Welcome to the Ness

Volunteering at Orford Ness

Would you enjoy spending a day on the Ness, greeting and guiding visitors, and helping to open and close the site? Our trail rangers are vital in making sure our visitors have a great day out and we are always ready to welcome more.

What would I do as a trail ranger?

  • Spend time with visitors to explain Orford's hidden history
  • Cycle with a watchful eye to ensure everyone has a safe visit
  • See everyone on and off with a warm welcome and friendly goodbye
  • Sell guidebooks and hand out visitor maps
  • Mark completed children's quizzes and award 'MegaSpy' cards

Tell me more

Duncan Kent is the ranger who looks after volunteers. He's the chap on the left with some of our volunteers on a day out to Flatford, Essex. If you're interested in helping us, do give him a call on 01394 450900.

Something to offer?

Paddy Heazel is our volunteer historian, whose book 'Most Secret: The Hidden History of Orford Ness' has recently been published.

If you feel you have a skill to offer it's always worth getting in touch.
