More than 50 locations will be taking part in Doors Open Hamilton this weekend.

Rachael Berney, Hamilton’s Heritage Presentation Coordinator, says they include buildings that are rarely open to the public such as the John Weir Foote Armoury and Auchmar Manor House.

Berney says it’s also the final chance to get inside St. Mark’s Church ahead of its restoration and transformation into a community cultural centre in 2021.
