The North Devon Maritime Museum in Appledore needs more volunteers to help run our popular museum, from Easter to the end of October each year. This involves selling tickets and running the small shop.

The volunteers are a friendly group who enjoy meeting visitors and helping them to enjoy north Devon.

Introductory tours which give an outline of the heritage contained within the museum, will be held on Wednesday mornings from 10:00am until 11:30am.


Please email or phone the number and address below to arrange for a tour, meet other volunteers and put your name on our rota!
