HERITAGE Open Days has returned in Farnham - with a bumper programme of walks, talks, tours and more planned this month.

The Heritage Open Days team gathered at the Museum of Farnham on Tuesday with Cllr Alan Earwaker, mayor of Farnham, and museum curator Josh Godfrey, to launch this year’s programme.

Starting on Friday, September 10 and continuing to Sunday, September 19, this celebration of Farnham’s heritage offers four special open days, at the castle, the museum, the pottery in Wrecclesham and the Rural Life Living Museum in Tilford, as well as 21 specially-chosen and varied led walks.

A brochure is available at council offices, library, the museum and various shops, and the programme is Covid aware and all the events are out of doors.

The walks, with intriguing titles like From Bat to Cow via Moths, Eastern Alleyways, Dippenhall and Falkner Country, and the less prosaically named The Architecture of Castle Street run throughout the open days event, and the popular trailer rides around historic Coxbridge Farm are back.

Walks and tours must be booked in advance, limited to about 12 people each. See farnhamsociety.org.uk/hods2021
