Heritage Open Days, September 2017
Book your place on a tour of Bessie Surtees House
As part of the national Heritage Open Days weekend, tours of Bessie Surtees House will start at 11am, 2pm and 4pm on Saturday 9 September only and will last approximately 30 minutes.
Spaces on the tours are limited and can be reserved by phoning the venue on 0191 269 1255 or by calling in to Bessie Surtees House reception.
Bessie Surtees House is a beautiful Grade I listed Jacobean Merchants House and home of Historic England in the North East. The tours involve visiting areas of the building not usually open to the public, including multiple staircases, uneven floors and narrow corridors which some visitors may find difficult.
Help photograph Sunderland's Heritage Action Zone
Can you help us capture on camera what four historic streets in Sunderland look like now?
On Sunday 10 September, as part of the Heritage Open Days weekend, help us to create a visual map of Fawcett Street, High Street West, High Street East and Church Street East.
Taking place in the Eagle Building on High Street East between 11am and 4pm, anyone with a camera is invited to pop in to see which buildings need to be recorded before setting off around the area. Your photos will be printed and used to create a map over the course of the day, which will then be digitised for future records.
There will also be more information available about the Heritage Action Zone in Sunderland and a chance to look around the Eagle Building. Bring along your own camera or phone and ideally a lead to download your photographs to a computer.
