Enjoying the view of Richmond from Culloden Tower.
 
 
Hello,

We hope you’ve had a wonderful  summer – perhaps including some time in a Landmark! Here’s our latest update on the amazing volunteer work that has been going on both behind the scenes and more publically at Landmark.

In August, we held free open days at Culloden Tower to coincide with the popular Georgian Festival in Richmond. An incredible 1100 visitors climbed the hill even though the weather was not so kind. We had lovely feedback from appreciative local residents at this chance to see their local Landmark, where they were welcomed with big smiles by local staff and volunteers. Thank you to all! We already hope to join in next year’s festival in the same way, so let us know if you’d like to get involved. 

September is our busiest month for open days, and at several this year we are offering extra activities with a FOOD theme. Last weekend, Auchinleck House was open for  Scottish Open Doors, where visitors learnt about Georgian table etiquette from ‘James Boswell’s housekeeper.’ 

England’s Heritage Open Doors weekend starts tomorrow, and we have 14 Landmarks opening across the country, manned by volunteers as well as Landmark staff – click here for the full list, and do come along if there’s one near you.

London and Wales join in on 17-18 September. Dolbelydr will take part in the Welsh Open Doors with a FOOD theme, as a food historian presents the sights, sounds and smells of a Tudor kitchen.   At Princelet Street, for Open House London, there will be silk weaving demonstrations. We expect to welcome over 6,000 visitors to Landmark open days this month, and rely heavily on our fantastic volunteers to make this happen. Thanks in advance to you all – and do send us your photos of the days by email or social media.

The Crownhill Fort volunteer “troop” in Plymouth is nearing full complement, willingly giving their time to defend the fort from weeds, litter, worn paint and keeping the whole site shipshape under fort manager Ed Donohue. Well done to all for your continued work.

Don’t forget to keep an eye on our website for any new volunteer tasks at Landmark – it’s a lovely way to find out more about our work and join the team.

Best wishes

Caroline, Kasia and Nina

P.S. There is also an Open day being held at Llwyn Celyn, Wales on the 17 September. Volunteers will be in action there all next week for our second Heritage at Work week, when volunteers and young people help us with essential conservation work - we wish everyone good luck there.
