If you’re missing being able to get out and about to some of the region’s interesting historic sites, then English Heritage can bring some of them to you – online.
It has highlighted 30 of its buildings, monuments and sites across the country available to visit online – including a few in the East of England.
The sites, including Audley End House and Gardens in Essex, Wrest Park and its Collections Store in Bedfordshire and Grime’s Graves in Norfolk, use digital technology, to bring their stories to life via the Google Arts & Culture platform.
Last week, the organisation took the decision to close all its staffed historic sites and cancel all public events.
Curatorial director Anna Eavis said: “We look forward to welcoming visitors back to those sites as soon as it is safe to do so, but until then we hope these online experiences will allow people an escape, and the chance to learn something new.”
