26 free events coming to the Forest of Dean

Posted on 16th September 2013

Around 26 free events will take place around the Forest of Dean area from September 12-15 to commemorate the Heritage Open Days festival.

St Briavels Castle

Heritage Open Days celebrates England’s architecture and culture by offering free access to places that are often closed to the general public or require an entry fee.

The Lydney Docks, the Deputy Gaveller’s Office, the Geomap, Newnham’s Fish Hut, Historic Hartpury, the Secret Forest, Westbury’s Bell Tower, Whitecliff Furnace, the Garland Hut and the Xerox Museum are just some of the places on offer to visitors around the Forest of Dean area.

Guided walks at St Briavels, Yorkley, The Field Study Centre at Parkend, All Saints Church at Newland, the Mushet Trail, Tan House Farm at Newland or around the Verderers’ Court at Speech House are also on offer to visitors in the area.

A large number of tourists are expected in the region for this amazing opportunity and, as a result, accommodation and holiday cottages in the Forest of Dean are likely to be busy during the festival.

For more information on the event, visit the Heritage Open Days website.
