Liverpool Heritage Open Days 2011

Liverpool Landscapes was a blog charting new discoveries, news and developments affecting Liverpool's historic environment. It was regularly updated between 2007 and 2016.

Liverpool Landscape has now been retired, and most of the less time-dependent articles moved to Historic Liverpool.

Following on from the success of last year’s event, dozens of historic buildings will be open for the public – for free – as part of September’s Heritage Open Days.

English Heritage will co-ordinate as usual, although the event relies primarily on volunteers, building owners, civic societies and other societies.

There are 108 buildings opening on Merseyside, as listed in the Heritage Open Days Merseyside table. There are the clear highlights such as the Williamson Tunnels, West Derby Courthouse, Ancient Chapel of Toxteth and all Three Graces, but I’d take this opportunity to check out the lesser known attractions, such as the Florrie Tour, Gateacre Chapel, the Wavertree Lock Up, or one of the many churches which are putting on special events.

Registration is still open if you’re planning an event not yet listed – do share in the comments! Did you go last year? Anything you’d recommend going to again this year?
