Heritage Open Days are to be held this year from Thursday,   8th  to Sunday, 11th September.

Some of Newcastle’s most interesting and historic buildings will be open to view, including  St. Giles Church, The Unitarian Meeting House, The Chapel of Rest, Holy Trinity Church and  St. Margaret’s, Wolstanton.

Each has a fascinating history and a wealth of architectural features.

There will be three heritage walks too, a combined Whitmore / Maer walk, a mining heritage walk in Silverdale and a walk at Mow Cop led by local historian, Philip Lees.

All events and openings are organised by enthusiastic volunteers. Take part in ‘Heritage Open Days’ this year and enjoy the history on your doorstep !

Look out for more details in August, in Newcastle Library , in ‘The Sentinel’ or on the Heritage Open Days website.
