Lincoln celebrates heritage with open days

The doors of many great Lincoln attractions will be thrown open for free this month as part of Lincolnshire Heritage Open Days 2013.

The four-day event, between September 12-15, will allow visitors to tour special buildings, attend talks and take part in activities relating to the city’s rich heritage.

The theme this year is “Material Matters”, meaning many of the events will focus on the variety of materials used to create some of the greatest county buildings and monuments.

Places in Lincoln taking part include Lincoln Cathedral, High Bridge Cafe, the Museum of Lincolnshire Life, Ellis Windmill, Hartsholme Country Park and more.

Almost all the events are free to attend, although most require booking beforehand.

Activities include cathedral tower and rooftop tours, a talk and tour about the original Lincoln Girls High School, a Roman tour of uphill Lincoln, a wildlife walk and even an event looking at the importance of cemeteries.
