Celebrating England’s Heritage: Heritage Open Days 2016

Commencing on the 8th September and running until the 11th September, Heritage Open Days is England’s biggest festival of history and culture.

Established in 1994 as England’s contribution to the European Heritage Days, Heritage Open Days aims to provide the public with access to historic monuments and buildings for free.

Events are happening all over the country and include walks and tours of historic buildings, alongside events such as church bell ringing, band concerts and fayres. With thousands of events happening across the country, why not explore the local heritage in your area?

If you own a Georgian or Victorian property, why not search for any similar buildings offering tours nearby and take advantage of learning more about style and period that your home was built in?

At The Sash Window Workshop, we understand the importance of preserving the heritage of period buildings. This means that our salesmen will always recommend the most appropriate service for your needs and we will aim to retain as much of the original windows as possible. We therefore offer a wide range of restoration services for timber windows and doors, ranging from minor repair work to complete replacement.

If your window frames are in a good condition, we can replace the moving sashes in your window while retaining the original frames. This not only retains the heritage of your home, but also saves you money and minimises disruption.

To search for events happening near you, visit the Heritage Open Days website.
