16th and 17th September

During the Heritage Open Days, why not explore Petworth to immerse yourself in the fascinating history and heritage of the area.  There will be something to entice all ages and interests.  Join a guided historic walk around the town, see the vast art collection at Petworth House, and step back in time at The Petworth Cottage Museum.

Don’t miss the opportunity to see Burton Mill in action making flour and visit the picturesque Coultershaw Heritage Site to see the waterwheel and beam pump.

The local churches will also be throwing open their doors and as if all that wasn’t enough, you can travel in style between the sites on a historic South Downs bus.  The free open topped Vintage Bus will be parked in Market Square, setting off every hour from 11am  for Coultershaw and Burton Mill, making five trips on both Saturday and Sunday.

It is an ample opportunity to see “behind the scenes”, free of charge. Full details are at Petworthheritage.org  We look forward to welcoming you to Petworth over this fun packed weekend!
