Sedgwick Gunpowder works guided walk, Mon 16, Weds 18, Fri 20 and Sat 21 Sept, 2pm
Join this guided walk to Sedgwick Gunpowder works on the Sizergh estate, and learn a few of their secrets... When you return to Sizergh, refuel with some seasonal treats in the contemporary café, open seven days a week from 10am.
Enjoy free entry to poet William's childhood home on 21 September, join the maid for a Heritage Open Day talk – and uncover the troubling reality of life in the 18th century. If you're feeling inspired after exploring Wordsworth's home, head to the gift shop to find yourself a literary gift.
Over two weekends in September we're throwing our doors open and inviting you to explore some of our special places, free of charge. Heritage Open Days are a perfect chance to see a new side to the places you know and love, or visit somewhere new.
