Fulham Palace Trust
Since 704 Fulham Palace has been the historic house and garden of the Bishop of London. Our vision is to engage people and provide an insight, through the stories of the Bishops of London, into over 1300 years of English history, and to become one of Great Britain's most loved and inspiring historic houses and gardens.

Green woodworkers make objects such as stakes and dibbers out of fresh timber. Green woodworking at the Palace requires no prior knowledge or experience and is a team activity taking place throughout the warmer months. Volunteers gain hands-on experience in an historic garden, work wood using sustainable techniques and, after training, produce high-quality items and demonstrate their skills at public events, engaging others with this fascinating handmade craft.

  • working in a team, woodworking together outside in Fulham Palace botanic garden
  • crafting wooden heritage items from green wood, usually from the Palace garden
  • inspiring others through demonstrating the craft at Palace family events, usually taking place on a weekend
  • creating bespoke signage for the Palace garden


Who will the volunteers be working with?
Volunteers work in a group together with a minimum of two people.
Most tasks are physically demanding and require manual dexterity but the role does not require previous experience.

Time commitment

• woodworking days: every second monday and fourth friday of the month
• prompt start from 10.15am (or join the team for tea break at 9.45am) and finish by 4pm
• lunch break – 12.30pm to 1.30pm

You’ll never be out of pocket for volunteering through us – with in-London travel expenses to and from your volunteering guaranteed.
