Heritage Open Day event ‘Edible Pitsmoor’ at Abbeyfield House 18th September

Abbeyfield Park House

Friends of Abbeyfield Park invite you to an open day at Abbeyfield House on Saturday 18th September, 1 to 4pm with tours of the house, food tasting and food making workshops. The house opens its doors offering FREE house history tours with an opportunity to have a look around the house and learn a little more about the history.

There will also be activities on the theme of Edible Pitsmoor. As well as tours of the building, People’s Kitchen Pitsmoor will be there and Friends of Abbeyfield Park would like to invite you and anyone you know who may be interested to bring along an example of a preserve, a pickle, jam, chutney or something that has been salted, desiccated or cured to contribute to a showcase of fruit or vegetables. They may be from different traditions or your family history – anything that shows how countries around the world have preserved and used different methods to store fruit and vegetables over the ages. If possible provide a short paragraph about your produce.

STOCK-MAKING WORKSHOP: The team from Green City Action will also be there, helping you to reduce food waste by making stock from leftover vegetables. Bring a small jar to take some sample stock home with you!

You can show your interest in the even by visiting the Friends of Abbeyfield Park Facebook event page.


The event is part of national Heritage Open Days (HODs). Events are taking place all over the country on the theme of Edible England.
