Heritage Open Days Wells

The Bishop’s Barn is delighted to be taking part in this year’s Heritage Open Day events. Heritage Open Day events take place up and down the country – opening up some of the UK’s finest and most-loved buildings.

Heritage Open Days in Wells take place from 7-10 September 2017. This year ten sites in the city will be open to the public free of charge, allowing you to see areas not normally open, or the opportunity to hear from a local expert. Wells Walking Tours will also be offering a Heritage Walk.

The Bishop’s Barn will be open on Friday 8th September from 12-2pm – come and have a look around the barn and have a chat to Louise – Project Development Manager about plans to conserve and develop the barn.
