Hits: 101

Fetcham Park House is opening the gates to its splendid gardens on Saturday September 11th as part of this year’s Heritage Open Days Festival.

As well as enjoying the garden views of Fetcham’s grandest house, you can enjoy the installations created by local crafts people brought together especially for this event.

On the same day you can also visit the historic St Mary’s Church next door, parts of which date from the 11th century.

Visitors to either venue can collect a free copy of Alan Pooley’s walking guide to the other historic buildings in Fetcham village.

Entry is free and refreshments will be available.

But the open day in Fetcham is just one part of a whole series of heritage events across Mole Valley from the 10th to the 19th September.

This year’s theme is ‘Edible England’ with talks on diverse subjects such as the ‘Edible History of Art’, chocolate making in Ashtead and the history of food research in Leatherhead.

There are fascinating places to visit such as the Wienerberger brick and roof tile factory at Walliswood, a windmill in Charlwood, and the former Effingham House which now hosts a golf club.
