The rich and varied heritage of Lincolnshire will be celebrated at the annual Heritage Open days event, which takes place from September 11 to 13.

And with this year being the centenary of the onset of the First World War, the 
focus will be on honouring the 
memory of this conflict.

Caistor Parish Church will be reprising the display dedicated to World War One on the Saturday and Sunday.

And Caistor Walkers are welcome will be leading walks to commemorate WW1 heritage in the area.

Leaving the Arts and 
Heritage Centre at 9.30am on Saturday, there will be the choice of a five-mile walk or a 12-mile walk.

There will be a guided walk around the town on the Sunday Commemorating WW1, leaving the centre at 2pm.

In Market Rasen, members of Rase Heritage will be at the town’s library on Saturday, September 13 from 10.15am to 12.45pm with a display of pictures and information on Market Rasen in 1914.

They will also be on hand to help people look for their own relatives using the library computers and, of course, to collect people’s family stories about The Great War.

Walesby St Mary Church is also open from 9am to 5pm throughout the four days with a tableau in remembrance.
