Coultershaw is entirely managed, operated and maintained by volunteers. From the initial restoration of the pump in 1980 our volunteers have continued to develop the site while welcoming many thousands of visitors. We have exciting plans for the future with many more activities and events throughout the season. Renovation of the South Warehouse to provide better workshop and exhibition space is now underway.
Can you help?
Our volunteers help in different ways, including
- Welcoming and guiding visitors
- Maintaining the heritage and generally looking after the site
- Researching the history of Coultershaw
- Helping to deliver our learning programme and other activities
Our maintenance volunteers meet every Tuesday morning – to see what is involved and meet the team please call in at the site. There is always a cup of tea waiting!
