Beverley will once again be taking part in the Heritage Open Days as a host of places will welcome the public in to have a look around.
A completely free event, Heritage Open Days in Beverley will take place from Friday 13 to Sunday the 15 September.
Barbara English from the Beverley Civic Society is looking forward to the event. She says the open days give the public an opportunity to look around buildings not normally accessible.
Speaking to HU17.net she said;
“This year the programme includes open buildings, walks and talks, and everything is free. In Highgate, a number of properties are open up and down the street, mainly on Saturday.
“Also as well as seeing houses not usually open you can explore, eat and drink at the Monks’ Walk, or sit peacefully in the quiet garden beside no.38. St Mary’s.”
“Beverley Minster is also offering special extras, like climbing the towers. The glorious Norwood House and Lairgate Hall are open on Friday. While both the High School and the Grammar School are open too.”
“A few miles outside town, Rowley church is open all three days with a special exhibition, and Rowley Manor on Friday as well. Rowley a special place, no village but a splendid house and church.”
