Heritage Open Days

Heritage Open Days 2020

Gostrey Meadow River Wey

The Covid-19 pandemic has prevented us from offering the traditional range of activities – visits to historic buildings and private houses, walks and talks. So our celebration of Heritage Open Days has a new look this year. September sees the launch of a new survey of public green spaces in and around the town, presented as self conducted tours. On offer is a collection of 38 fascinating guides to Farnham’s Green Spaces, assembled and recorded by retired tree expert Peter Bridgeman, well known for his talks and guided walks. We feature parks, gardens and recreation grounds in and around the town. Some will be quite familiar but others much less well known.

The guides are presented in a set of two leaflets. One lists spaces within the town, the other describes those in outlying areas.  They are available now from the Council Offices in South Street, Farnham Library and other locations on the town, and are also online here – click the links below to download as PDFs.
