European Heritage Open Day's

If all goes well I, hopefully with Mrs A & the boys, intend to visit 3 x places - Ballycopeland Windmill, just outside Millisle - Rosemount, Grey Abbey's Cistercian Abbey and an old favourite Helen's Tower at Clandeboye.

I suspect the weather is to be getter on Sunday, so I will visit Helen's Tower then - as the views from the top should be stunning!

Took this piece from the Northern Ireland Environment Agency's Web Site.

European Heritage Open Days (EHOD) are held annually in September in 49 countries highlighting not only the dazzling diversity of Europe’s heritage but also its intercultural links.

During this weekend the public are given the chance to explore buildings and grounds that are not normally open, for free. 2010 is the 13th year of EHOD in Northern Ireland. Over this time the event has become Northern Ireland’s largest cultural programme with over 56,000 visits recorded during last year’s EHOD.

This year EHOD will take place on 11 and 12 September. Keep this weekend free and take your family and friends along, enjoy the opportunity to explore behind closed doors and experience many of Northern Ireland’s most interesting and beautiful places!

We are currently organizing this year’s events and we’re trying to add new properties and events as well as including ‘old favourites’ for you to enjoy. The EHOD brochure will be available from your local Tourist Information Centre or library and online from mid August.

In December 2009 over 100 guests attended the European Heritage Open Days (EHOD) 2009 Thank You Event in the Ulster Museum. The EHOD Thank You Event is an annual event to thank those owners who open their homes and properties to the public as part of EHOD.
