A week celebrating Dorset's buildings will no longer go ahead.

Organisers say they are 'crestfallen' to announce that the Dorset Architectural Heritage Week has been cancelled because of coronavirus.

The annual event sees sites of historic interest which are not normally open welcome visitors.

It was due to take place from September 11 to 20.

Organisers said: "We have waited as long as possible, but the decision has finally had to be made.

"We are all truly crestfallen and so very sorry to have to add more disappointment onto what has now become a very tragic year.

"But rest assured we will be back in 2021 and we look forward to welcoming you all back again. Thank you so much for all your support."
