Volunteering at Cronkhill and Town Walls Tower

Cronkhill the Italianate villa on the Attingham Estate, Shropshire

We’re looking to recruit new volunteers to join the team at Cronkhill and Town Walls Tower to continue to help us open these hidden gems, provide a warm and friendly welcome, and tell the fascinating stories of these special places.

Cronkhill and Town Walls Tower are two smaller properties that are looked after by the National Trust team at Attingham Park.

Cronkhill, an Italianate villa on the outskirts of the Attingham Estate is tenanted, and open for six days a year. Town Walls Tower, in Shrewsbury, is also tenanted, and open for eight days a year.
