Today is the start of Dorset Architectural Heritage Week – an annual event to increase awareness of Dorset’s wealth of¬†architecturally important buildings and culture.

The initiative allows free access to many buildings that are normally closed to the public or charge for entry.

Their website¬†gives all the details of what’s on and how to book and a useful pdf of the entire event is here.

We opened the cottage to the public as part of the Shaftesbury Festival in June this year but on this occasion we have guests staying! If you are visiting Shaftesbury Abbey do walk down Gold Hill and identify Updown at close quarters!
