Our volunteers make all the difference to how visitors experience Woolsthorpe Manor. We wouldn’t be able to bring the story of Isaac Newton to life without them. Together we can communicate the worldwide significance of Newton’s work and ensure the whole site is preserved for generations to come.

Volunteers are welcome from all areas of the community for both regular and one off volunteering; bring your skills, learn new ones and be part of a team that is passionate about Woolsthorpe Manor.  You don’t need to be a Newton expert to get involved!

So whether you have an interest in history, are enthusiatic about science, a love of serving cake or green fingers, there are opportunities to get involved with our work here.
