Winsford Church Trail for Heritage Open Day

Winsford will be joining in National Heritage Open Day on 10th and 11th September this year by launching a trail around four of the town’s churches : St John the Evangelist, Christ Church Warton,  St Chad’s and the United Reformed Church.

The new illustrated church trail and map has been developed by a group of local historians and artists working with the  Saltscape Landscape Partnership and will be available from the churches and from Winsford Library closer to the  weekend.

Heritage Open Day is run by the National Trust and ‘Treasure Your Treasures’ is the theme for this year’s annual festival, which calls on communities to champion their local heritage and show their support for cultural and historic assets on their doorsteps. Visitors are encouraged to capture themselves on camera with the objects, people or places that they treasure and to share their stories online via social media using the hashtag #TreasureYourTreasures.
