Are you passionate about the past? Are your friends and family fed up with hearing yet more about your historical interests? Then look no further, we are searching for enthusiastic volunteers to share Horsey Windpump’s story with our visitors!

One of 240 windpumps dotted over the Norfolk Broads, for many decades Horsey Windpump has been a prominent visual link with the history of the Norfolk Broads.

It has withstood floods, fierce storms, wars and a lightning strike that finally put it out of action in summer 1943. A huge restoration project has been undertaken since 2015, and finally, a fully functioning windpump is on the horizon!

You’ll be joining a friendly team with a wealth of historical knowledge. Our windpump volunteers engage our visitors with tales of Horsey’s history, share in the delights of working with others and there are always opportunities to help with fundraising, special events and anything else you may have an interest in. If you’re able to spare some time, you can sign up directly on the national trust website- myvolunteering – National Trust and search for Horsey (click on ‘more details’ below Windpump Volunteers article).

We hope to see you there at this exciting time for Horsey Windpump!
