Jobs to be done at Wortley are unbelievably diverse; in the Summer there is gardening, grass cutting and (weather permitting) painting the buildings and equipment. For the rest of the year, there are stationary steam engines and I.C. engines to clean, paint or restore. People continue to donate exhibits for our Industrial Museum and our machine tools are in constant use making replacement parts.
If you are good at talking, particularly making the history of the Forge into a story interesting to children, you could become a guide. Be warned, you must also be good at walking, and remember most visitors seem to come as soon as you pick up a sandwich or cup of tea.
For more ideas, you can look at the ‘Restoration News’ page to see what we have been doing.
