Heritage Open Days 2019
Heritage Open Days is England's biggest festival of history and culture. Every year, in September, thousands of sites across the country invite you in to explore local treasures of every age, style and function, and many special events are held. It's your chance to see hidden places and try out new experiences — and it's all FREE!
This year's Kirklees programme offers a record total of 68 events, including 30 new ones. The local brochure is now available on the Discover Huddersfield web site.
We've launched an online shop where you can download high-resolution scans of historic items such as maps and photographs at reasonable prices. All income will be used to secure more content that can be added to the site.
... or see the What's New? page for more recent additions to the site.
