Watch our heritage walk on video

The annual Heritage Open Days event is back. Last year we organised a guided walk around the streets of the area exploring our history and architecture, and we’re repeating this on 11 and 18 September. However, with the coronavirus pandemic we’ve had to limit numbers, and we realise that inevitably the walk will be fully booked in no time.

The good news is that we’ve made our walk virtual! You can watch our 20 minute documentary that follows the walk and explores some fascinating local history, scenes from the past and the area’s wealth of Victorian architectural features. We hope you enjoy it!

We hope this inspires you to dig out your old photos and tell us your stories of life in the area in the past – we’d love to see more pictures of scenes from the past and maybe even make another documentary next year. Please contact us at info@bell-tower.org.uk if you can help.

    Its often only when someone takes the trouble to point things out that we notice them. I’m pleased I saw this. Thank you for making it.

    Are you aware of the Southern Hill and Whiteknights history and architecture video?

      We’re glad you liked it! Must confess that I saw the Southern Hill and Whiteknights video before we made ours – that one and the Watlington House video inspired ours 🙂
