OPEN DOORS POL­ICY TO CEL­E­BRATE NA­TIONAL HER­ITAGE

Cadw pro­gramme of­fers free en­try at land­marks

Caernarfon Herald - - NEWS - Joe Leaver

HUN­DREDS of land­marks and build­ings across the coun­try are open­ing their doors through­out Septem­ber for Cadw’s an­nual Open Doors pro­gramme.

From me­dieval cas­tles, Ne­olithic burial cham­bers and mu­se­ums – more than 300 sites are tak­ing part, as a “cel­e­bra­tion of the ar­chi­tec­ture and her­itage of Wales”.

Lo­ca­tions will of­fer free en­try, guided tours, ac­tiv­i­ties or spe­cial events as part of this year’s scheme. Events, such as a guided walk­ing tour of pubs in Ruthin and free en­try into the Lloyd Ge­orge Mu­seum in Llanystumdwy, have al­ready taken place as part of the 2018 pro­gramme.

Still to come is free en­try into the his­toric quarry hospi­tal in Llan­beris and Yr Ys­g­wrn, the home of poet Hedd Wynn in Trawsfynydd.
