Mary Arden's House Re-opens To Visitors

Popular tourist venue Mary Arden's House is to be re-opened following its closure because of the foot and mouth crisis.

The house, which is on the edge of Stratford, will re-open to the public on Saturday.

Some parts of the complex, such as the field walk, will remain closed and the farm animals will not be on show.

The Shakespeare Birthplace Trust closed the house at the end of February as a precaution when the foot and mouth outbreak hit the county.

Visitors will be asked to walk over disinfectant mats and all car wheels will be disinfected.

The situation is being closely monitored and the Trust has plans in place should the outbreak spread to the local area.

The other houses cared for by the Trust, Shakespeare's Birthplace, Anne Hathaway's Cottage, Hall's Croft and Nash's House & New Place have been unaffected and remain open for business as usual.
