Heritage Open Day
9 September 2017, 10:00 am–4:00 pm
The annual ‘Heritage Open Day’ celebrates our built heritage by allowing visitors free access to fascinating properties that are either not usually open, or would normally charge an entrance fee. The event is part of the national celebration of architecture, history and culture in association with the National Trust in the UK and is a wonderful opportunity to explore and enjoy these sometimes hidden, often curious and always interesting places.
This year the Trust we will open several of its properties including the Foot Buildings. Numbers 4, 5 and 6 in Pitt Street have been saved and are currently being refurbished. Brook Farm, Chapelles des Freres and Victoria Tower will also be open as well as a WWII water storage bunker in St Ouen’s Bay. Our sponsor Andium Homes will be serving teas at Victoria Cottage Homes in the afternoon and the Masonic Temple will also be open over the weekend as it is celebrating its tercentenary. We will also be staging two guided walks around St Helier, one around Havres de Pas looking at the Victorian architecture and another the Regency ‘splendour’ of the town and its many crescents.
The Trust is delighted that Andium Homes have agreed to sponsor “Heritage Open Day”. Andium Homes manage over 4,500 properties, delivering quality services to more than 10,000 Islanders, and providing homes to many charity organisations.
