About Lincolnshire HODs
Each year the Lincolnshire Heritage Open Days festival celebrates the county's architecture and culture by allowing visitors free access to interesting properties that are not usually open or would normally charge an entrance fee.
For the last two years, Saxonhouse has opened as part of the festival in September. Visitors came to learn about how Saxonhouse was built and discover what life was like in Saxon England in the 7th century.
Both afternoons were sunny and Saxonhouse looked very smart after the repairs to the thatch and the renovation of the daub walls, the lime and the interior paintings.
The visitors were lovely - really interested in the processes and the period - and Saxonhouse garnered new friends.
We are open again for 2018: the dates are Friday 7th and Sunday 9th September between 12.00 and 4.30 pm. This year we are giving talks at 1pm and 3pm on both afternoons, but you are also welcome to just come and browse. Booking is required on 01673 878636 or email email@example.com
