Well its almost that time again peeps smile

Heritage Open Days
Heritage Open Days 2011 will be 8-11 September

Heritage Open Days celebrates Englandís fantastic architecture and culture by offering free access to properties that are usually closed to the public or normally charge for admission. Every year on four days in September, buildings of every age, style and function throw open their doors, ranging from castles to factories, town halls to tithe barns, parish churches to Buddhist temples. It is a once-a-year chance to discover hidden architectural treasures and enjoy a wide range of tours, events and activities which bring to life local History and culture.

Free of charge and literally on peopleís doorstep, Heritage Open Days is an event for everyone, whatever their background, age and ability. smile

I'm not sure. I'll pop into the library in a bit then let you know. A paper one would be handy.

It's open from Monday 5th Sept to Friday 9th. Pre-booking required no later than 3rd September. Don't think there'll be any stalls inside, probably just guided tours of the now empty building and its projector room.

I went on the Storeton Village tour last year run by Peter France.

Absolutely beautiful walk to go on even though it tipped it down more or less the whole time, some really fascinating stuff about local History and upcoming archaeology in the area. Peter France certainly knows his stuff, we were shown all sorts of ancient buildings, the History of storeton hall, all sorts of wonderful local fokelore etc

I really wood recomend it! In fact I might go again smile I will just make sure I take wellies incase its wet again!

Pre-book tours with Peter France on 0151 200 9545

Anybody going to any of the events
I'm going to try for
The Masonic hall in Clifton road - nearly 50 years since I last hurried up it to get to school (can't remember if there was a TA place in that road

Also the Royal British Legion in Park RD East (may catch bandicoot in the sailors place and have a pint)

Church at the top of Oxton rd (only if I phone and find they allow access to the top of the tower)

Not heard anything doing at the Town Hall similar to last 2 wiki visits
