RESIDENTS can enjoy two days of free admission to Avoncroft Museum as part of Heritage Open Days – the biggest celebration of England’s history and architecture.

The museum will be throwing open its doors to offer free entry to all visitors on Thursday and Sunday (September 8 and 11).

The fascinating site will provide visitors with access to 19-acres of beautiful grounds and to a collection of 30 buildings which span across seven centuries of history.

Firm favourites include a working medieval town house, a 19th-century windmill, a ‘flat-pack’ Victorian church and a fully-furnished 1940s prefab.

The buildings have been rescued from their original locations and carefully reconstructed at the museum.

Avoncroft is also home to the National Telephone Kiosk Collection of working phone boxes, with some of the very first kiosks dating back to the 1920s.
