Buildings that have seen centuries of history in the old town of Bridlington will throw open their doors this month.
Two private houses, Bestworth at 51-53 High Street, and The Toft at 43 High Street will welcome visitors on the weekends of September 14th to 15th and 21st to 22nd.
Built for local merchants, and used for different businesses over the last 300 years, their current owners will be delighted to show you round their historic homes between 10.30.am and 5.pm.
The Toft is hosting local crafts-people, who will demonstrate their skill in stone carving, quilting, spinning and bobbin lace making. Light refreshments will also be served in the garden of The Toft on the same days.
The Baptist Chapel on Applegarth Lane, thought to date from 1698, will also be open on the same days.
This year’s theme is People Power, so look out for window displays showing famous local residents and the impact they had, not only in Bridlington, but nationally.
Starting at The Toft there will be short guided walks around the Old Town, starting at 2.pm. and 3.pm on 14th, 15th, 21st and 22nd.
Destination Old Town is delighted to be taking part again in the national Heritage Open Days scheme and their message is ‘Come and learn more about your heritage – it is all free.’
