Do you fancy dressing up as a Tudor lady? Perhaps you’d prefer to show visitors how to put out an incendiary bomb? Would you like to guide people round our beautiful grounds or maybe you’d like to gain experience behind the scenes with our collections and displays?

We have a wide range of Heritage Volunteers opportunities across the Sheffield Manor Lodge site.


  • Tudor Tour Guide: Leading historical tours around the grounds and turret house, helping visitors discover the intriguing history of Sheffield Manor Lodge.
  • Costume Interpreters: Costumed and monologue interpretation for Tudor or 1940s. Great for those that enjoy dressing up!
  • Discovery Centre Reception: Welcoming visitors to the site, reception duties including making tea and coffee and till work
  • Artefacts Cataloguer: Cataloguing and retrieval of artefacts, predominately material donated from the Traditional Heritage Museum

  • Heritage: Helping with Tudor, 1940s or Stone Age education sessions for school children. The activities are hands on and fun and perfect for anyone wanting to gain experience working with children or anyone retired.
  • Farm and Environment: If you have a passion for gardening or cooking then you might want to help with our seasonality school sessions. We maintain our veg patch and cook seasonal, healthy recipes. We also have a go at honey extraction and apple crushing.
  • Informal Education: In the school holidays we run craft session four days a week. Our fantastic volunteers run an activity each making sure the children know what to do and helping them make some crazy creations.
