This weekend sees the return of the popular Pleasant Sunday Afternoons (PSA) lecture series at Marriott’s Warehouse on the South Quay in Lynn.

It starts on Sunday at 3pm with “Restoration of the Monuments at Hardwick Road Cemetery” by Dr Julian Litten.

Donations at this talk will be shared between the Trust and the Friends of Hardwick Road Cemetery.

The series then continues every two weeks on Sundays April 9 and 23, and finally May 7, with talks on “The Salt Making Industry in East Anglia”, “Premier Inns? The Friaries, their Guesthouses and Celebrity Guests” and “The Classical Country House from the Renaissance to the Present Day”.

All the lectures are free and there is no need to book.

Trustee Dr Paul Richards says: “The Trust is pleased to attract speakers in diverse fields to throw more light on important aspects of local and national history.”

Marriott’s Warehouse was built in the 1580s to store salt, corn and wine, and is now a grade 2* listed building. Run by the Marriott’s Warehouse Trust, it aims to tell the story of the town’s historic built environment, particularly its merchant houses and warehouses.

The Trust’s free exhibition, Historic Buildings of King’s Lynn Past & Present, is open daily.
