Celebrating Heritage Open Day in King’s Lynn. Pictures: Ian Burt

A host of historic buildings and sites in West Norfolk opened their doors to celebrate the area’s heritage.

Hundreds flocked to King’s Lynn last Sunday to make the most of the packed programme for Heritage Open Day while others took the opportunity to visit the lighthouse at Old Hunstanton and other events and attractions across the borough.

In Lynn, many places not usually open to the public allowed visitors through their doors.

These included the air raid shelters beneath the Tuesday Market Place and the Bank House cellars.

Iconic landmarks were open such as the Red Mount Chapel in The Walks and the South Gate.

The atmosphere was filled with music and dancing while military re-enactments drew plenty of attention.

Visitors were able to get around the town in style with the vintage buses and there were river tours from the pontoons on the South Quay.

Houses, offices, historic buildings, gardens, churches, cemeteries, towers and more welcomed visitors.

There was also guided tours at the Hardwick Road Cemetery, and the Jewish Cemetery in Millfleet.

Events were organised by local civic societies working with partners, groups, businesses and organisations.
