Open Doors - Burgess Gate (23 – 24 September 2017)

Burgess Gate Grade I Listed Building, Scheduled Ancient Monument | Castle Hill, LL16 3NH

This fortified gatehouse was the entry to the walled town from 1282 onwards and had portcullis, murder holes and arrow slits. It was one of a pair of gateways; the other being the now lost Exchequer Gate. Both were built between 1282 and 1294 by Henry de Lacy, Earl of Lincoln, under licence from Edward I and were probably designed by the leading military architect of the day, Master James of St George. The twin towers of Burgess Gate form the symbol on Denbigh’s civic seal. The building has also been used as a council chamber and a prison.

Saturday and Sunday 11am-4pm | Accessible with step up into tower.

Open Doors - Denbigh Town Walls (23 – 24 September 2017)

Denbigh Town Walls Grade I Listed Building, Scheduled Ancient Monument | Bull Lane, LL16 3SN

The town walls encompass the old town and castle of Denbigh and extend for almost two thirds of a mile. Work began in 1282 and included the 20m high Goblin Tower, built to enclose and protect the only reliable water source for the castle. The walls held back the besieging force of Oliver Cromwell’s Roundheads for nine months during the Civil War, when the garrison was defended by Colonel William Salesbury, ‘Old blue stockings’. The wall walk from the Countess Tower to the Goblin Tower affords superb views across the Vale of Clwyd to Moel Famau and the Clwydian Range.

St Mary’s was built in 1874 to replace the medieval church of St Hilary within the old town walls. Designed by local architects Lloyd Williams and Underwood the church contains an excellent but controversial reredos (the carving on the east wall behind the altar), condemned at the time as “an inducement to Popery and a betrayal of the principles of the Reformation”. Other features include the Flemish dossal (back panel) of 1530 in finely woven tapestry and the very fine Arts & Crafts stained glass windows lighting the nave

Open Doors - Brookhouse Pottery (23 – 24 September 2017)

Brookhouse Pottery, Brookhouse, LL16 4RE

This early 19th century building was originally a malt house supplying the local pubs and breweries. It is robustly built in stone directly on the river which supplied the water for the malting process. Originally it had three floors with very cramped headroom between each. The process demanded generous floor area to maximise the size of the shallow malting cisterns. With the development of industrialised malting the building fell into disuse and in the mid-sixties was converted for use as a pottery. Because of the sturdy construction and sympathetic conversion the strong character remains. The busy pottery run by David and Margaret Frith is an ideal user for this lovely riverside building.

Saturday and Sunday 10am-4pm | Accessible

Open Doors - Dr Evan Pierce Memorial Garden (23 – 24 September 2017)

Dr Evan Pierce Memorial Garden Grade II* Listed Building, Grade II Registered Historic Garden | Vale Street, LL16 3BW

Dr Evan Pierce himself built the 50ft column topped by his statue to mark his philanthropy as Coroner, JP, Alderman and five times Mayor of Denbigh. It also commemorates his work as a medical doctor during the cholera epidemic of 1838. Dr Pierce lived in Salisbury Place opposite and would have been able to look at his image from his window. This is a small Victorian public garden with a formal layout and planting typical of its period, recently extensively renovated. Two fountains at the entrance commemorate Victoria’s Jubilee.

Saturday and Sunday 9am-5pm | Accessible
