Free Heritage Open Day

Enjoy free entry to Gawthorpe Hall – see original plaster ceilings, decorative paneling and luxuriant Victorian rooms showing off furniture, ceramics and portraits. Gawthorpe Hall’s library will also be open and Gawthorpe Textiles Collection staff have a stunning new acquisition to show off – a Battle of Britain lace panel. Then walk down the dizzying spiral staircase to reach the Victorian kitchen – open especially for today, the housekeeper will be talking about life and work as a servant in the 1890s. Have a go at making a Victorian ‘stock cube’ for flavouring meals or write out a menu using a quill pen.
