Newcastle-under-Lyme and District
Contributed by Diana Bevan
Every year in September ‘Heritage Open Days’ celebrate England’s architecture, history and culture. Buildings of every age, style and function open their doors to the public free of charge and interesting activities are arranged.
Enthusiastic volunteers organise the openings and events, co-ordinated by English Heritage and local Civic Societies. In Newcastle-under-Lyme and District there are nine events taking place supported by Newcastle Civic Society.
