Saturday 10th September 2016

The only Gateacre building in this year's Heritage Open Days programme is the Unitarian Chapel - built in 1700 - which will be open to the public on Saturday 10th September from 10.30am until 4pm. A self-guided tour (including child-friendly 'I Spy' tour) will be available, featuring the stained glass window given by Sir Henry Tate, the bust of anti-slavery campaigner William Shepherd, and the tombs of the Gaskell family and others. Volunteer interpreters will be on hand, and refreshments will be available.

In Woolton, the only participants this year are the Friends of Reynolds Park. They are holding a Litter Pick from 12 noon till 3pm, and will have an information table just inside the Park entrance (Church Road) with self-guided Heritage Trail leaflets available. They will also be serving light refreshments to visitors.

To link these two local events, we shall be offering a series of circular guided walks - led by Mike Chitty - departing from the Chapel at 12noon and 2pm and from Reynolds Park (inside the gates nearest to Calvert Court) at 1pm. This timetable will allow Reynolds Park visitors to spend 30 minutes in the Chapel before returning via Sandfield Road and Woolton Mount, and will allow Gateacre Chapel visitors to spend 20 minutes in the Park before returning via Woolton Hill Road and Gateacre Brow.
