HERITAGE WEEKEND: Fenland opens its doors to show off history to visitors

TOURS, events and activities take place across Fenland this weekend offering you the chance to explore the area’s heritage – and it’s all FREE.

Heritage Open Days takes place from September 8-11 and there are events in Fenland’s four towns to celebrate.

The nationwide event allows free access to interesting properties that are either not usually open or would normally charge an entrance fee.

Organised by volunteers – people from all walks of life who care about and take pride in the environment they live in make Heritage Open Days happen – will give up their time to share their in-depth knowledge and help you make the most of your visits.

From contemporary buildings to churches, factories to castles and town halls to museums. The variety of places to discover are endless.

This special eight-page supplement is your guide to the weekend – it details every event taking place across Fenland.

So if you want to explore the Neolithic seaside town that was Chatteris, take in Whittlesey’s rich trading and agricultural history, enjoy the pretty surroundings of March’s West End Park or discover the Georgian architecture of Wisbech, there is an event for you.
