Heritage Open Days in Budleigh
Fairlynch Museum is one of two unusual buildings in the Budleigh area which will be opening their doors to visitors in September to coincide with the English Heritage Open Days scheme.
The Museum will be open on Sunday 11 September from 2.00 - 4.30 pm, with free entry to the public.
Heritage Open Days celebrate England’s fantastic architecture and culture by offering free access to properties that are usually closed to the public or normally charge for admission.
Every year on four days in September, buildings of every age, style and function throw open their doors, ranging from castles to factories, town halls to tithe barns, parish churches to Buddhist temples. It is a once-a-year chance to discover hidden architectural treasures and enjoy a wide range of tours, events and activities which bring to life local history and culture.
Also open as part of the English Heritage Open Days scheme will be the Salem Chapel and Schoolroom in East Budleigh, welcoming visitors on Saturday 10 and Sunday 11 September from 1.00 - 4.00 pm.
