Explore the history and heritage of Bridgend County Borough

Lost castles, famous ironworks and former WWII prisoner of war camps are among the areas and locations that will be opened up this September as part of the ‘Open Doors’ initiative.

Designed to give local people an opportunity to explore the area’s rich history and heritage, Bridgend County Borough Council and the Civic Trust for Wales will be teaming up to offer a series of free events focusing on places and buildings that are not normally available to the public.

The full list of events is as follows:

Saturday 3 September

Saturday 3 and Sunday 4 September:

Saturday 10 September

Saturday 17 September

Saturday 24 September

Sunday 25 September

Deputy Leader David Sage said: “The Open Doors programme is a great way for residents of Bridgend County Borough to find out more about the area’s history and heritage, and I hope the events will be well supported.”
