Heritage Open Days 2020

This page was created specially to host our contribution to Heritage Open Days 2020.

With the ongoing restrictions caused by the coronavirus pandemic, we shelved our plans for guided walks at the Sand House site for 2020. Instead, we put together a video.

This video uses images of the Sand House in its heyday and compares them with modern day photographs taken at the same locations. It also includes photos taken during the period of redevelopment of the locality and compares them with the modern day, too. The images are accompanied by a narration, summarising the story of the Sand House and providing further details of the changes that occurred in the area during the 20th century.

The video was available to watch during the full 10-day period of Heritage Open Days 2020, beginning on Friday 11 September. Because of its success, we decided to retain it online for the foreseeable future. We hope that you enjoy it.

All events for Heritage Open Days are free of charge. However, if you enjoy this video, perhaps you would consider making a voluntary donation to The Sand House Charity, please? You may do so at www.paypal.me/TheSandHouseCharity. Thank you.
