Scrub bashing, film-making, dancing and stone masonry. What do these things have in common? Find out more about how Tyntesfield has involved its local community since 2002.

How will you join in?

Get your hands dirty

Whether you’re a keen gardener, have a passion for photography, or relish delving into research, you’ll be sure to find a volunteering opportunity that suits you. Share your skills and experience or try something new.

Young people

Tyntesfield has a youth group called TYNTE, run by a panel of young people who plan and run events throughout the year.  From music and art events to outdoor volunteering, there are lots of ways to get involved.

A place for learning

When Tyntesfield was saved for the nation, its potential as a learning resource was considered one of its most important features. Today our team works with local schools, colleges, universities and community groups.

Be a part of our kitchen garden's future

We need to carry out urgent repairs and restoration to the glasshouses, potting sheds, cold frames, oak gates and the impressive walls, to save and protect our kitchen garden’s future.

The HLF have provided funding towards this restoration, but a shortfall remains. You can play a part in this special kitchen garden by volunteering or making a donation. Please contact our fundraising manager today.

Get closer to nature

Bring your camera to Tyntesfield, pick up a family-friendly guide and explore our wild places. Then use the pictures you've taken to create digital postcards to share your discoveries with friends.

Is your office in need of some fresh air? Why not volunteer with us for the day? With 500 acres of land and lots to do around the estate, we always welcome employee groups who want to give us a hand.

Working holidays

We run three working holidays a year. You could clear wood to reveal Victorian carriage ways or learn the secrets of lime-mortar stone walling. Make new friends, develop new skills and conserve Tyntesfield's heritage.
