As part of Heritage Open Day in September we visited the Nottingham Heritage Vehicles Charity in Hucknall. I try to visit somewhere new each Open Day and as I’d never heard of this place until I’d spotted it on the website I thought it was worth taking a chance on. The NHVC’s aim is to preserve and restore local transport and as such they had different buses on display during our visit.

The last place I visited in September as part of Open Heritage Day was Brackenhurst Hall in Southwell, part of Nottingham Trent University that isn’t normally open to the public. I arrived just as they opened so I got to go on the first of the tours that day, which is just as well as there was a fairly constant stream of people arriving throughout my visit.
[Note: This took place before it was announced that Nottingham City Council have sold the library building as office space. At time of writing there is no clear plan as to what they are going to do with the library].
I managed to visit three different sites during Heritage Open Weekend in September, (yep, that behind with writing things up again!) where places in England open up for free or access is granted to places normally closed to the public. One of the options available that caught my eye was a behind the scenes tour of Nottingham Central Library which is my local library.
