Caldecote Church has been selected as one of the buildings to participate in the national Heritage Open Days project and will be open to visitors this weekend.
Heritage Open Days is England’s biggest festival of history and culture involving over 40,000 volunteers.
Every year over four days in September, thousands of events across the country invite the public in to explore local treasures of every age, style and function, all for free.
St Mary Magdalene church in the tiny village of Caldecote near Ashwell was built around 1350 from clunch in the nearby Ashwell quarry.
The redundant church is being restored by Caldecote Church Friends.
