Heritage Open Days in the area got under way last weekend, with a number of historic buildings opening their doors to the general public for a unique look behind the scenes.

The Church of St Martin On-The-Hill, Scarborough Maritime Centre and St Mary’s Church were among many to open their doors, with more to do the same this weekend.
