Discover Jersey at this weekend's Heritage Open Day
This Saturday 9th September, the National Trust for Jersey is opening up several of its wonderful buildings which are not normally open to the public. Access to the buildings is free and the day always proves popular with islanders and visitors alike.
So much to see
With six properties open and a number of events taking place throughout the day, you won't be able to see everything , so it's worth planning your day carefully.
Outside of St Helier, the National Trust is opening Brook Farm in St Brelade; La Chapelle des Frères, a Methodist chapel in St John; Victoria Tower, a Martello tower at Anne Port in St Martin; and a WWII water storage bunker in St Ouen’s Bay.
In town, the Foot buildings in Pitt Street are being opened during their refurbishment and the Masonic Temple in Stopford Road is open as part of the tercentenary celebrations. There are also two guided walks around St Helier on offer. One is around Le Havre des Pas, concentrating on the area's Victorian architecture, whilst another explores the Regency splendour of the town.
Time for tea
If you plan to take a scenic route across the parishes to explore the island’s architectural past, Greenhills -with its own centuries-old granite farmhouse - provides a lovely resting spot between destinations for a light lunch or afternoon tea.
