HISTORIC East Riddlesden Hall is opening its doors for free on Sunday, September 10.

The venture is part of the Heritage Open Days initiative.

Amy Gregory, collections and house officer at the National Trust-run hall, says: "Free heritage events provide people with an opportunity to see our collection who might not normally have the chance.

"The hall has a long history with strong ties to the local community, and we can’t wait for people to come and enjoy it."

As well as visiting the house and gardens for free, people can enjoy lawn games in the formal gardens, a new puppet theatre and giant scales in the discovery garden, a trim trail and crafts.

The hall, gardens, tearoom and shop will be open between 10am-4pm.
