Heritage open day - 13th September 2014

Barton House, 63 High Road, Chilwell, Beeston NG9 4AJ. After another year when Bartons plc have been severely tested by the difficulty of tram construction all around us, we return to Heritage in September by both being a host to other splendid local organisations and their displays, and contribute ourselves to the HOD movement.

Large parts of Bartons Chilwell site rarely seen by the public will be open. Although the tram situation has made us feel like The Alamo must have felt like after its annihilation, Bartons remain firmly committed to the Beeston and Chilwell area and will have vehicles, ephemera and new information on display showing the Company's contribution to East Midlands life over the last century, and as is our intention, the next.

Opening Times: Saturday: 10am - 4pm

Due to unforeseen circumstances relating to tram construction, trips on vintage vehicles will not this year take place. Barton vehicles will be on static display only.

Please look at the news for more info on the day.
