Volunteer Neal – Room Guide


As part of National Volunteer Week, we’re celebrating the many interesting and valuable characters who contribute to making Harewood the place that it is….

Why do I volunteer?

Using my spare time to good advantage – social interactions with other volunteers and the public – the purpose seems very worthwhile.
What brought me to it?

It is the nearest stately home to my home.

What did I do?

I was a biology lecturer at Nottingham Trent University.

What three things do I enjoy?

Contact with pleasant, like-minded and friendly volunteers.
Gaining knowledge about a very complex topic (the history and fabric of the house).
Spending a day in such a special environment.

What do I love most about Harewood?

The views – to the north across to the deer and to the south across the terrace and the lake – magnificent.
