Heritage Open Days run from 7th to 10th September and are a free opportunity to visit and learn about heritage sites in our locality. The programme is organised for West Cheshire and Chester Council by Chester Civic Trust and includes places throughout the Borough (not just Chester).

In Tarvin, on Saturday 9 September, the lovely Grade 1 listed 14th Century St Andrew's Church will be open from
10. 00 am to 4 00 pm. This is an opportunity to see its historic features such as the 14th Century rood screen and south aisle barrel roof (thought to be one of the best in Cheshire) as well as stained glass windows by notable Victorian artists. There is also the acclaimed village history exhibition with the remains of a Saxon cross and the refurbished funeral bier.

Alongside the church, the grade 2 listed Old Grammar School (now the Parish Room) will also be open and where St Andrew's Painters Group are holding their annual art exhibition. Refreshments will be available.

At 1 30pm, starting from outside the church, the Local History Group are leading a conducted tour of the historic centre of the village describing the many listed buildings and relating the story of the village's past.
