Cirencester Civic Society

 

The dates were Friday 8th to Sunday 10th September 2017. New in 2017 was an Opening talk "Friend or Foe?-the Abbey of St. Mary and the townsfolk",  St. James's Place roof garden, the Open air swimming pool, the new Baptist Church, Stratton House Hotel & St. John's Chantry almshouses gardens.

This year there were 20 premises opening their doors including the Siver Street courtyard and the Old Station for the second year, and there were new walks on Saturday ( Market Place) and Sunday (Watermoor).

A leaflet detailing the opening times and location of all the properties was available from the Information Offices and other outlets. You can see all the programme by visiting www.heritageopendays.org.uk and typing Cirencester as the location.

In 2017 a large number of people visited the numerous places which opened their doors. The record was for the Corinium Museum on Sunday afternoon when 335 people visited -probably because it was free!!
