AN award-winning eco home and an historic mill are among the attractions opening their doors to the public for free from tomorrow (Thursday).

Heritage Open Days, supported by English Heritage, gives the public free access to famous or historical buildings, private homes, castles, temples, factories, gardens and parks all over the UK and Europe between tomorrow and Sunday.

In Welwyn Hatfield, Welwyn couple Tony and Pat Almond will be opening up the doors to their home, 16 Carleton Rise, which was named best environmental household at the 2010 Hertfordshire Green Awards.

The property features state-of-the-art electricity generating and hot water heating systems, as well as bees and chickens providing honey and eggs.

The Almonds’ home opens on Thursday and Friday from 6.30pm to 8pm and on Saturday and Sunday from 11am to 3pm.

Mill Green Mill and Museum will also be free to the public this Sunday, between 2pm and 5pm.

Visitors can take a guided tour around the museum stores, see collections and displays and meet regional conservator Libby Finney.

The watermill will also be producing wholemeal organic flour, and cream teas will be available to buy.
