Open door policy for Heritage Open Day

To celebrate and be a part of Lincolnshire Heritage Open Day, on the 10th September, the Cathedral opened its doors and allowed visitors free entry as well as the opportunity to see inside the little known works department.

Caring for and protecting the Cathedral takes considerable time and effort and it’s the works department who keep the building looking its best.

The connected team also got involved – never one to miss an opportunity to share the Connected vision – we based ourselves amongst the talented craftsmen and women in the works department and met visitors interested to hear about our plans for the Cathedral’s future.

It was a fantastic day and we welcomed many visitors to our display who showed great interest in our proposed plans. It was a great opportunity to hear from local people and some from outside of the county what they thought to the improvements that we hope to make.

It wasn’t all chit chat, we had our popular dressing up costumes on hand for children to dress up as Roman soldiers and medieval knights and even a few adults got into the spirit and donned the outfits!

Lincolnshire Heritage Open Day is part of a national initiative that celebrates England’s architecture and culture and is a great way for people to see and experience interesting buildings that are not normally open to the public, such as our works department.
