My first National Trust Working Holiday for about 18 months. This holiday was to Wales where we were thinning hedgerows ready for replanting at Dolobran and removing non-native trees from woodland at Ganllwyd. We had two days off, visiting Barmouth, Harlech and Llandudno.

A slightly different National Trust Working Holiday this time! This one was spending a week setting up and stewarding two open-air concerts at Petworth Park (Status Quo and Jools Holland). We got to do exciting things such as setting up the signs on the roads and stewarding the car parks for the thousands of people who turned up.

This was my first National Trust Working Holiday of 2003. We were mainly working on general mainenance of the Stourhead Gardens (particularly cutting and burning overgrown rhododendron!). Stourhead is a very picturesque garden, with lots of follies set around a large lake.

NT Working Holiday, Fountains Abbey, Yorkshire NT Working Holiday, Fountains Abbey, Yorkshire
9 Sep 2000 to 16 Sep 2000 - 43 photos
An exciting holiday this time! Our main task during the week was to strip turf from under Huby's Tower in the Abbey and lay matting and gravel to allow people to walk under the tower. We had to work closely with archaeologists as the Abbey and gardens form part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site. For our hard toils, a photographer from the Yorkshire Post came to visit and an article appeared in the Yorkshire Post that week. We went to Nidderdale on our day off - something of a luxury considering that the roads were deserted owing the fuel shortage that week!
