NEW VOLUNTEER ROLES FOR SPRING/SUMMER 2024
Applications are now open for new volunteers at Underfall Yard!
Volunteering is a wonderful way to build or showcase your skills and interests, as well as joining a passionate local community. Your support this year could make an enormous difference as Underfall Yard Trust continues its important work.
Underfall Yard was built in the 1880s as a purpose-built docks maintenance facility. The Hydraulic Power House was completed in 1887 and powered a network of locks, cranes, swing bridges and much more. The 1907 hydraulic pumps were decommissioned in 2010 and the building was opened to the public in 2016 as a Visitor Centre and Cafe.
Underfall Yard is not a museum. It is a working environment with maritime business, an operational slipway, the Docks Engineer and Harbour Master’s teams all contributing to the working nature of the site. We provide education activities for many audiences, including: schools, youth engagement charities, adult learning groups and community groups.
