Volunteering at Anglesey Abbey

Our volunteers come from all sorts of backgrounds with all kinds of interests and experience, and they all help us look after our special places. At Anglesey Abbey we're gradually restarting our volunteering opportunities, following a break during the pandemic. We'd love to hear from you if you're interested in any of the opportunities listed. As we reopen and restart more of our work, watch this space for a wider variety of opportunities.

Why volunteer?

There are many reasons why volunteering is a fantastic opportunity. Besides making new friends, learning new skills and contributing to something worthwhile, volunteering offers the chance to play your part in caring for the nations heritage.

As the largest conservation charity in the UK, the National Trust cares for gardens, parkland, houses and other historic buildings, aswell as the collections contained within their walls. 

Here at Anglesey Abbey, volunteers are involved in a wide range of roles from supporting the smooth running of the estate, to helping keep our garden looking tip top and telling stories to bring the house and mill to life.

Current opportunities

Our volunteer Millers bring Lode Mill to life by operating the mill, demonstrating flour production and telling stories about what makes Lode Mill and Anglesey Abbey special.

As a House Experience volunteer, you will help bring the stories of Anglesey Abbey, its people, and collection to life.

You’ll assist the garden team in the care and conservation of the garden. This will be a great opportunity for garden lovers to add to their skills and learn from the team and share their enthusiasm for the garden with our visitors.

Work Experience

Our work experience programme is currently paused. We hope to reinstate it in 2022, so keep checking our website and social channels for further information.
