Heritage Open DaysPublished Friday, 10 August 2018
This year, there’s lots to discover in Wyre during Heritage Open Days.
From guided walks to unique tours and activities, you can explore some of the borough's most historical and iconic buildings and beautiful open spaces.
Every year in September, places across the country throw open their doors to celebrate their heritage, community and history. It’s your chance to see hidden places and try out new experiences – and it’s all free!
Wyre Council is taking part in the occasion from Thursday 13 to Sunday 16 September by hosting a range of events and activities for all ages to enjoy.
Highlights include tours of historic locations such at The Mount, Marine Hall, Rossall Point Tower, Marsh Mill, the Civic Centre, The Lower Lighthouse, Euston Park Gardens and Garstang Quaker Meeting House.
There are also guided walks around Garstang, Poulton, Fleetwood Cemetery, Memorial Park, Skippool, Bleasdale and Rossall Point.
Councillor Lynne Bowen, Portfolio Holder for Leisure, Health and Community Engagement at Wyre Council comments, “Heritage Open Days is a really special time as it gives people the opportunity to learn more about the history of where we live. We may pass these buildings regularly but not have the opportunity to actually go inside. We are lucky to have lots of historical venues, parks and towns here in Wyre and I’d encourage everyone to discover something new about the wonderful borough that live in.”
Please note opening dates and times vary for each venue and event. For full details take a look at our Heritage Open Day guide available at www.wyre.gov.uk/heritageopendays
