Heritage Open Days in Herts - 8-11 September

Heritage Open Days celebrates England’s fantastic architecture and culture by offering free access to properties that are usually closed to the public or normally charge for admission. Every year on four days in September, buildings of every age, style and function throw open their doors, ranging from castles to factories, town halls to tithe barns, parish churches to Buddhist temples. It is a once-a-year chance to discover hidden architectural treasures and enjoy a wide range of tours, events and activities which bring to life local history and culture.
I nearly forgot to include this - so apologies for the lack of notice. The Heritage Open Days web site lists events in: 
Berkhamsted, Caldecote, Hatfield, Hertford, Hitchin, Ickleford, Letchworth Garden City, St Albans, Stanmore, Stevenage, Tring, Ware, Watford & Welwyn.
I am particularly impressed by the wide range of buildings that will be open in Hitchin, organised by The Hitchin Society
