Watford's doors open for a successful Heritage Open Days weekend

Venues across Watford helped to create the biggest and most popular Heritage Open Days ever in the town between 8th and 11th September 2011.

Over 1000 people visited places big and small including the first opening of the Free School to the public in living memory!

Watford Museum's own 'After Hours' event was a great success and you can view Simon Jacob's photographs of a great evening at http://www.simonjacobs.com/museum/
