Heritage Open Days: What’s on your doorstep?Published Friday, 01 September 2017
Wyre is hosting a series of special activities to celebrate Heritage Open Days from Thursday 7 – Sunday 10 September.
From guided walks at the iconic Mount Pavilion to discover more about the live restoration project, to tales from bygone times at Wyre Estuary Country Park, explore some of the borough's most historical and iconic buildings and places in a collection of unique tours and activities.
Councillor Lynne Bowen, Leisure and Culture Portfolio Holder at Wyre Council, said: "We're inviting people to experience local history, architecture and culture, all for free as part of this national heritage festival.
"We're opening up a variety of buildings, leading tours of towns and villages and offering the chance to learn about the history of these places from the people who know them best - our knowledgeable and dedicated volunteers, Friends groups, rangers and local historians.
"There is something to interest all ages and I'd like to encourage everyone to discover somewhere new in the wonderful borough that we live in."
Highlights include a walk in the footsteps of those who lived, worked and served in Bleasdale during the Great War. For nature lovers, why not learn about wildlife on our coast with birdwatching and guided walks from Rossall Point picnic area.
Wyre Council is opening the doors of the Civic Centre in Poulton for a tour that will explain the history of both building and council, and how the two came together.
