The crystal Grotto is Charles Hamilton's masterpiece and the most spectacular of the follies at Painshill. Restoration work, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, was completed in June 2013. The Grotto is open to visitors every weekend and for guided tours during the week (starting in April).
We need volunteer stewards to bring the Grotto to life for our visitors, explaining the history and restoration work.
We need stewards to welcome visitors and tell the story of Painshill and the Grotto.
You will need to be able to communicate well and ideally have an interest in the history and restoration.
You will also help us to protect this fragile environment.
No previous knowledge of Painshill is needed and you will always be working with another steward. In time you might want to train to join our guide team.
