Many hands make Lyme work

Many hands make light work and in our case, many hands make Lyme work! Over 600 volunteers help to keep Lyme ticking and without their support, Lyme wouldn’t been the wonderful place it is.

Lyme's volunteers take on many roles including room guides, park rangers, gardeners and educational support, to name but a few. Volunteers not only assist in the running and upkeep of such a wonderful place but also play a key role in the essential conservation work required to maintain an historic house and deer park.

People volunteer at Lyme for different reasons; to learn new skills, make new friends, to become part of friendly team or to gain experience for future employment.
