What will I be doing?

  • A detailed knowledge of the site is not required, but wardens need to be able to answer basic questions about Crossbones or know where to direct enquiries that they cannot answer. .
  • Were currently looking for people to help open Crossbones Garden (near London Bridge) to the public during the week and at weekends from 12 to 3pm. you'll have the opportunity to learn and teach others about the history and importance of this very special place.
