Residents in Wrexham are being invited to take part in an annual celebration of the towns architecture and heritage next month.
As part of European Heritage Days, Open Doors offers free access to a variety of buildings, heritage sites and events of all kinds. The programme is the largest volunteer-led event in the Welsh heritage for Wales.
This year the events will begin on September 4 with an open day at Iscoyd Park. Other events planned include an open day at Erddig, a guided walk in Cefn Mawr and an open day / exhibition at Chirk Castle. and a programme with full details of these events is available at Wrexham County Borough Museum & Archives and Local Tourist Information Centres. The celebration concludes on September 29 with an open day at Bersham Colliery.
It is hoped the events will bring opportunities to visit churches, historic houses, heritage sites and take part in special events.
Cllr Neil Rogers, Leader of Wrexham Council, said: “The Open Doors Programme provides many opportunities to see Wrexham’s industrial heritage, some of its many listed buildings and some spectacular scenery.
“Many are led by volunteers and there are also some events led by the National Trust, Wrexham Council, Wrexham Heritage Service etc and private owners, and I would like to thank them all for providing us with this varied and interesting programme of events.”
