English Heritage has announced site closures for all sites until the 1st May 2020.
English Heritage Chief Executive, Kate Mavor said: “Our first priority is the health and wellbeing of all our Members, visitors, volunteers and staff. As a charity, we could not survive without their support but we also have a responsibility to them – hence this decision.
Our stone circles and castles, abbeys and historic houses are found in the centre of towns, on the brows of hills and in the heart of the countryside and I hope that over the coming months, the sight of these long-standing landmarks will provide a sense of continuity. It may also be of some comfort to remember that England’s past is full of stories of hope in the face of adversity and of people coming together to overcome challenges.
Today we face new challenges of our own – English Heritage wishes everyone well and we look forward to welcoming you back to our sites as soon as possible.”
