Promoting and supporting voluntary activity across South Northamptonshire


Opportunities with Delapré Abbey Preservation Trust

The beautiful Grade II* Listed Delapré Abbey, just one mile from Northampton town centre, has entered an exciting new phase in its history. Following the success of a Heritage Lottery Fund application in 2013, a £7 million project has seen this once "Building At Risk" undergo substantial repair and restoration works over the from 2015-2018. Now the Abbey has opened its doors to the public for the first time in its 900 year history, with The Delapré Abbey Preservation Trust managing the building as a fantastic historic venue for local, national, and even international visitors. With a growing team of volunteers that helps support both inside and outside of the Abbey, we have lots of opportunities for people to get involved. Most of all, we want visitors to come and explore the twists, turns and stories Delapré Abbey has to tell. Volunteers help to make that happen, so get involved with us today!
