On 12th September, Manor House School was proud to open its doors to the general public as part of the ‘Heritage Open Days’ weekend. ‘Heritage Open Days’ is a national scheme, managed by the National Trust, which takes place between 10th–13th September.
It is the largest heritage festival in England, celebrating the diverse history, culture and architecture that the country has to offer and involves the help of around 40,000 volunteers.
The gorgeous green stripes of the grounds, complimented by the charming white building attracted over 200 people to Manor House School where they took pleasure in exploring its expansive interior and delving deep into its atmosphere. Visitors were also able to peruse our archives where they found displays of photos and other interesting items from the school’s past.
Our staff received plenty of compliments throughout the day, particularly regarding the quality of the grounds and the impressive Queen Anne building. This building was constructed in 1710, making it one of the oldest structures in the school’s grounds and an important aspect of our heritage.
We are proud to be a part of ‘Heritage Open Days’. Events like this are important for keeping local history and culture alive.
