Heritage Open Days

Heritage Open Days is England's contribution to European Heritage Days, taking place across 50 countries. It is England's largest festival of history and culture: in 2018, over 5,500 events welcomed more than 3 million visitors across the country. The festival is coordinated and promoted nationally by the National Trust with support from players of People's Postcode Lottery, and run locally by a large range of organisations - including civic societies, heritage organisations, local councils, community champions and thousands of enthusiastic volunteers. Every single Heritage Open Day event is free, including access to many sites that usually charge for admission.

The festival is running from 13th - 22nd September this year, so it's easier than ever to get involved and visit sites on your doorstep or further afield.

This year Warwick Bridge Corn Mill will be taking part once more, enabling visitors to see the work that has been going on over the last year, hear about our plans for the future, see the waterwheel and millstones turning and take part in other family friendly activities.
