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. Many of our rangers also get involved in other important work on the Ness.

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

Something to offer?

 Keith Moxon is our volunteer web editor. ‘I started as a Trail Ranger in 2013 and immediately fell in love with the Ness. I revealed that I had some  PC knowledge and now I look after our main website!'

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