Volunteering at Bressingham Steam

Bressingham is a registered charity and a working steam site. Although we employ full time members of staff, we always need part time volunteers to help fulfil roles such as locomotive drivers both rail and road, railway guards, engineers, gardeners, plus a host of other general maintenance duties, both in and out of season.

At Bressingham, we have many active volunteers – some of whom come at least once a week, nearly every week of the year! But we're always looking for more volunteers who can dedicate as little or as much time as they can!
