The lock cottage team enjoyed a successful first Christmas themed opening on three Sunday's during December 2016. We had a broad range of visitors who showed an interest in both the history of the cottages and the on-going work of the ECP&DA.
Although most of the visitors were from within the local vicinity, others had travelled from further afar. Donations raised over £200 pounds and on the final day our last mince pie was enjoyed by a lucky visitor!
Already our thoughts are turning towards the next Christmas opening and other opening times throughout the year.
We have extended the number of opening days and times (view them here) and if you didn't manage a visit in 2016 then put it in your calendar for this year.
Our door is always open to you.
