Your contribution is valued at The Abbey

There are many ways to be a part of the extended community of The Abbey; we look forward to welcoming you.


The Abbey offers volunteer opportunities for individuals seeking to offer service to the community, as well as individuals who are committed to the aims of The Abbey and are seeking to be involved in a practical way.

On an occasional basis, The Abbey is able to offer a three – six month internship. Please contact us for more information and to discuss availability.

Occasional working bees are organised at The Abbey so that volunteers can contribute practically to the site’s preservation and future. If you would like to offer your services as a volunteer or to be notified of upcoming volunteer days please get in touch.
