Events

 

In line with Government advice and reccommendations, the Trustees of the Slough Fort Preservation Trust have made the decision to postpone all major events at Slough Fort in the interest of safeguarding both the public, our Volunteer Team, and our Trustee Team. 

However, Guided Tours of the Slough Fort site will be starting again soon - please head over to our Tours page for more information.

We thank you for you understanding, and apologise for any inconvenience caused. 

 

Slough Fort Community Heritage Walks

As a new event for Slough Fort in 2020, the Slough Fort Preservation Trust is running a limited series of Community Heritage Walks around the village of Allhallows and the Isle of Grain. These walks are completely free and we welcome any and all that wish to accompany us. A wealth of local history is available to learn from start to finish, guided by the SFPT's Chair, Keith. 

The first of these Community Heritage Walks ran in January and turned out as a resounding success, so the SFPT has decided to run two more - on March 1st 2020, and March 15th 2020.

Please Note: Although the Community Heritage Walks are free, we do have a limited number of spaces on each tour. Due to this, we ask that you book spaces on each of our these Walks. Click the dates below to go to the Ticket Booking site.
