Volunteer opportunities at Leith Hill
Our team of busy volunteers are the bedrock of our estate and habitat management team; without their support, the mosaic of landscapes surrounding Leith Hill would soon become unmanageable. The Rhododendron Wood is a hidden treasure that immerses you in botanical history, while Leith Hill Place, the 17th-century house on the estate, offers indoor volunteering opportunities.
The work volunteers do
Each week, plants, trees, hedges and ponds are pulled, lopped, cut and dug to maintain our diverse habitats and their inhabitants. Gates, signs, benches and posts are then milled, routed, sawn and joined to keep our tracks and bridleways open for everyone.
There are also opportunities at Leith Hill Place. We’re always looking for new volunteers to welcome visitors, serve teas and ensure that the visitor experience is the best it can be.
