A TOWN is making the final preparations for an annual heritage event.

A celebration of Denbigh’s architecture and heritage will see visitors take a step inside the town’s oldest buildings such as Denbigh Castle, Crown Square, Denbigh Masonic Hall and Beatrix Potter’s garden at Gwaenynog as part of the European Heritage Days, which take place in 50 countries across Europe every September.

The Denbigh event, Denbigh Open Doors, will take place on 28-30 September.

New properties for this year’s event include the King’s Arms on Vale Street, St Hilary’s Church Tower and Grŵp Cynefin offices on Vale Street and St David’s Church.

The weekend will start with a talk by the Royal Commission on Ancient and Historical Monuments in Wales at 7pm on Friday hosted at theatre Twm o’r Nant, with a focus on the research and recording of the Shire Hall in Denbigh, now the library.

This will be followed by weekend events such as a tour of medieval Denbigh, a tour of the town’s geology, a walk around Myddelton College, and a special event ‘Denbigh and the Great War’ upon its 100th anniversary.

Medwyn Williams, chairman of the Open Doors Denbigh Steering group, said: “Our Open Doors weekend has become an established event which showcases some of the town’s rich architectural heritage which spans eight centuries.

“This year we have more buildings than ever to visit as well as a number of events and tours for visitors to enjoy.”
