Friends of Gressenhall

Established in 1975 ‘Friends of Gressenhall’ is a voluntary organisation whose aim is to give practical and financial support to Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse.

During the early years of the museum’s life the Friends managed the museum’s farm and paid the rent until it was later adopted by Norfolk Museums Service and still today all of the horses that work the land have been purchased by the Friends.

As well as supporting many projects throughout the museum the Friends also support the museum’s large volunteer community.

You can help us to keep the past alive and be part of an exciting living working museum by supporting us and becoming a Friend of Gressenhall.
