About Woodlands of the White Peak

Join the rangers in the White Peak clearing areas of understorey and scrub to improve the woodlands and increase biodiversity.

Explore the woodlands of the White Peak by helping us with a large-scale woodland management project, part of which is a response to the threat of ash dieback. Working with staff and other volunteers, you will be clearing areas of understorey and scrub to improve the age structure of the woodlands and increase biodiversity. Due to the rough and steep terrain the work can be physically demanding.

About the accommodation

The bunkhouse is in a wing of the old stable block behind Ilam Hall and sits within Ilam Park, a beautiful landscape open to the public all year round. The hall is run separately as a Youth Hostel by the Youth Hostel Association. The stable block also houses the main National Trust visitor facilities including the visitor centre, tea-room, shop and toilets.

Notes for guests

A standard kit list can be found on our Essential Information page.

Work will often take place on steep slopes.
