Willington Dovecote & Stables will be opening free of charge from 2-5pm.

The neighbouring church will be opening alongside the Dovecote & Stables. There will be an organ recital taking place which visitors can listen to. Admittance to the church is free, with them grateful for donations.

There isn't a food and drink offering at the Dovecote & Stables however the church does offer teas and coffees, as does the Danish Camp which is in the village.

There aren't toilets at the Dovecote & Stables, however the church does have toilet facilities.

We're looking for volunteers to help with opening the Dovecote & Stables to visitors. Volunteers would be engaging with visitors and telling them about the history of the site. Matthew, the Volunteering & Community Officer, will be onsite so please speak to him if you're interested in volunteering and would like to find out more.
