Open doors event was a hit with visitors

* The Old Lock Up was one of the buildings open in Llangollen. 
Around 1,300 people took advantage of special weekends of events aimed at opening the doors of historic properties in Denbighshire during September.

A total of 43 properties opened their doors to the public in Llangollen, Denbigh, Ruthin, St Asaph, Bodelwyddan and Rhuddlan as part of Open Doors Denbighshire– with people taking part in 45 guided tours and events.

Properties opeb in Llangollen included the Chain Bridge, Valle Crucis Abbey, Plas Newydd, Y Capel, Castell Dinas Bran and local churches.

Helen Calder, Event Co-ordinator for Denbighshire, said: “We would like to thank everyone involved in this year’s Open Doors events that took place throughout September. We would particularly like to thank the leaders of the guided walks and tours and the owners of private homes that opened their doors to the public.

“All of the guided tours were fully booked and all events were well populated. We have received some very positive feedback from members of the public and the feedback forms are still pouring in.

“We are very proud that the event is seen as one of the best in Wales and one that the Civic Trust for Wales would like to see repeated throughout Wales”.

The committee includes members and volunteers from:Llangollen Civic Society, Denbigh and District Civic Society, Ruthin and District Civic Association, with funding and support from Denbighshire County Council, Cadwyn Clwyd, Ruthin, Denbigh and Llangollen Town Councils.

Open Doors Denbighshire also received funding through the Rural Development Plan for Wales 2007-2013 which is funded by the Welsh Government and the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development.
