Cover of this year’s programme.

This year’s Heritage Open Day on Sunday 14th September promises to be bigger and better than ever, with over 50 King’s Lynn properties open to the public and lots of new events, including exhibitions, open gardens, story telling, music, art and dance demonstrations.

Also new this year will be a Classic Car Show to be held on the Tuesday Market Place, and a chance to go underground in an air raid shelter.

At the first King’s Lynn Classic Car Day, visitors will be able to see the “Cooper Car”, one of only 6 ever made at the Cooper Roller Bearings factory in 1909, and the only one to survive.

World War 2 air raid shelters were re-discovered during work on the Tuesday Market Place last year. The shelters were adapted for use from existing underground tunnels in 1939, and included two toilets and wooden benches around the walls.

The remains of a Benedictine Priory attached to St Margaret’s Church can be visited at Priory Gardens, and there will be access to Hampton Court Secret Garden via St Margaret’s Lane.

Visitors will be able to climb aboard the Three Counties catamaran, moored at the pontoons down on the quay and learn all about the Inland Fisheries Conservation Authority and the work they do around our coast.

There are also 14 artistically created landscape projects to view at various locations throughout the town created by highly talented artists and landscapers from France with the help of local people. These are all interspersed amongst King’s Lynn’s historic streets, gardens and along the waterfront, all worthwhile taking the time to explore and enjoy.

Heritage Open Day takes place in King’s Lynn on Sunday 14th September 2014 from 10am to 4pm. Full details can viewed by clicking the link below …
