About Doors Open Days: North Lanarkshire
Doors Open Days is Scotland’s largest free festival that celebrates heritage and the built environment, new and old. Every September, you can explore hundreds of fascinating buildings across Scotland for free. Some open up once a year, some just once in a lifetime.
Doors Open Days is a national event run by the Scottish Civic Trust. Information about the national programme, including event listings, can be found at www.doorsopendays.org.uk. Doors Open Days, along with Scottish Archaeology Month take place throughout Scotland and are part of European Heritage Days – an initiative which promotes a sense of community and a “common heritage” throughout the continent.
North Lanarkshire Highlights:
Cairnlea Parish Church, Airdrie
Cairnlea Church, formerly Flowerhill Church, is located in Airdrie's Graham Street and is a listed building in the Italianate style erected in 1875. Since the union between Flowerhill and Broomknoll Churches in 2016, the congregation has spearheaded a major internal refurbishment of the whole site - installing air source heat pumps, new lighting and major changes for the sake of general accessibility and multi-purpose use.
Cumbernauld Library and Museum
Situated within the town’s main library, the museum tells the story of Cumbernauld and surrounding area from pre-history to the Romans and on through the 19th century, to the development of the new town in the 1960s.
North Lanarkshire Heritage Centre
North Lanarkshire Heritage Centre is a free family visitor attraction located with Motherwell. Ideally situated with excellent train and bus links and within close proximity to local shops and cafes.
St Augustine's RC Church
St Augustine’s RC Church was designed by British architects Pugin and Pugin in 1896. The B-listed Gothic church demonstrates the use of high quality materials, fine decorative finishes and great attention to detail. It is a formidable red sandstone ensemble with an impressive triple doorway.
