Heritage Open Day 2013

Heritage Open Day ClaremontWe had a really successful day on Saturday (14 Sept 2013), welcoming around 65 people to Claremont. Our visitors had the opportunity to see round the building and learn about its past inhabitants, as well as the Society's work today. Nicola from the WEA was also on hand to tell people about the community dig which took place on Claremont's lawn at Easter.

We were also very excited to meet a lady who is a descendent of Dr Heaton, who lived at Claremont between 1856 and 1880.
