Heritage Open Day 5: A Retrospective

The final post in my series on Heritage Open Day.

INTRODUCTION

Welcome to the fifth and final post in my series on Heritage Open Day, which was a week ago yesterday. The previous four posts give a personal perspective on  the places that I and my two companions for the day visited. This one is there to tie things together and sum up the whole experience.

KING’S LYNN AND PUBLIC FESTIVITIES

This day provided further proof of how good King’s Lynn is at putting on  a public show. Whether it is water-skiing on the Great Ouse, the Lynn Festival, The Hanseatic Festival or the “Fawkes in the Walks” public firework display (which attracted 15,000 last year)  the event seems to work splendidly.

THE DAY AS A  WHOLE

By the end of the day I was thoroughly exhausted, but I had greatly enjoyed myself. My cousin Edward and his partner Rachael were excellent company, the weather stayed decent throughout, and it was a joy to see so many people enjoying what King’s Lynn had to offer.
