Volunteer Gardeners in the glasshouse potting on seedlings

We rely on volunteers to help us open the estate to visitors and to conserve it for everyone to enjoy.


Volunteers help us with welcoming visitors, gardening and wildlife conservation, they also help with guided tours around the garden, hall, park; help with school groups at the farm and some even muck out the pigs.
