This may be of interest to many of you. Lots of fascinating photographic opportunities to be had (you may of course have to seek permission to photograph) at locations across England* which are usually closed or inaccessible to the general public. There is something for all interests. Over 3,600 events have already signed up for Heritage Open Days 2011.
Thursday 8th September to Sunday 11th September. Entry is free!
Heritage Open Days celebrates England's architecture and culture by allowing visitors free access to interesting properties that are either not usually open, or would normally charge an entrance fee. Heritage Open Days also includes tours, events and activities that focus on local architecture and culture.
Attractions include: follies, contemporary buildings, churches, factories, tunnels, temples, offices, private homes, industrial sites, castles, windmills, town halls - guided walks, concerts, re-enactment, trails, role-plays, children's activities.
*Heritage Open Days is England's contribution to the European Heritage Days, a Council of Europe initiative, in which 50 countries take part. Other nations in the UK and London each have their own dedicated Website and Open Days.
