Volunteering at The Folly

The Folly is a beautiful 17th century Grade I listed building, in the heart of the pretty market town of Settle in the Yorkshire Dales. In 1996 The North Craven Building Preservation Trust purchased part of The Folly and completely restored the building and opened it to the public in 2001. The Folly houses the Museum of North Craven Life and hosts regular exhibitions during the open season. The rest of The Folly has now been purchased by the North Craven Building Preservation Trust thus reuniting the two parts of the house.

The Museum is independent and run by volunteers. We rely entirely on admission charges, donations, grants and legacies, for the running and development of The Folly. All of the work of running The Folly is carried out by an established, enthusiastic and skilled team of volunteers. This team needs additional members to carry out a variety of tasks in order for the museum to run smoothly. We are currently seeking more help to ensure that the visitors to The Folly enjoy their visit. We are also expanding the team who work behind the scenes in the museum. So there are a variety of roles for new volunteers to fill:
