A HISTORIC farm house in Worcestershire is hosting an open afternoon as part of the national Heritage Open Days initiative.

Willow Court Farmhouse in Droitwich will be hosting an open afternoon at Westlands Centre so visitors can gain an understanding of the history of the 16th century building.

A selection of Tudor themed activities will be available to enjoy from 1.00pm on September 24.

The three hour event will have free entry and the project archaeologist, Tim Cornah will be on hand to share the history of the building.

The "Safe as Houses" project said they are delighted to be holding the activity afternoon for the grade II listed building.

Previously known as Boycott Farm, the building has been uninhabited for decades.

Worcestershire Building Preservation Trust has taken on the challenge to conserve the building, record its history and create six new affordable flats for rent.

Whilst visitors will be unable to enter the building, Heritage Open Day is an opportunity to view conservation in action and learn more about the ongoing preservation work on site.

All activities will follow relevant covid guidance.

The project is supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, The Architectural Heritage Fund, Wychavon District Council and Platform Housing.
