Volunteering at Coldharbour

Every year our volunteers to keep Coldharbour open and care for the Mill. If you would like to join us we would like to hear from you – whether you love steam, enjoy gardening or would like to help for a few or a lot of hours we would love to hear from you.




Steam Team

With a wide range of ages and skills from computing to engineering to farming our group of volunteers have one thing in common – enthusiasm and commitment.
The Steam Team meet every Tuesday, from 19.00 to about 21.00 to maintain and improve the rare collection of steam exhibits at Coldharbour Mill Museum… but you will also find some of us with our engines on other days too!

Tour Guides
