The theme for 2020 is Hidden Nature, to host events and open up areas of the countryside that aren’t normally accessible to the public. Revealing the hidden history of not just our natural landscapes, but also gardens, green spaces, urban parks, orchards, vineyards, farms and forests.
Due to Covid-19 many of our event organisers and locations are unable to open or host events for this years Heritage Open Days. What we have been able to do is create a virtual HODs for this year. We hope you enjoy it and look forwarding to hosting HODs again next year.
