This week we welcomed our latest Bath Spa University placement student to Downside to begin their work with us. 

Joseph is currently studying for an MA in Heritage Management at Bath Spa and is undertaking his placement module here with us in the Heritage Department. Joseph has loads of exciting ideas for his work and while we don’t want to give anything away, we are sure his time at Downside will be a great success.

Downside has had a long relationship with Bath Spa University over the last decade, with many undergraduate and postgraduate students working with us and a good few of our volunteers have been past students as well. It is great to be able to continue this partnership with the arrival of Joseph. 

Make sure you stay tuned to the abbey news on the website as we will be updating it with Joseph’s work. We are all looking forward to the next few months and working with him!
