Warehouse tells much of Lynn’s history

Lynn’s 16th century Marriott’s Warehouse aims to tell the story of the town’s historic built environment, particularly its merchant houses and warehouses.

The Marriott’s Warehouse Trust’s models exhibition, Historic Buildings of King’s Lynn Past and Present, is open daily.

The popular Pleasant Sunday Afternoons (PSA) lecture series returns on March 31 at 3pm with “Treasures of Norfolk Discovered Underground” by Kevin Elfleet.

They continue every two weeks until April 28 with “In Search of the Hanse – Lübeck, Visby and Novgorod” and “The Seven Towns of Marshland”.

The lectures are free and there is no need to book.

They will be followed by the Trust’s annual History and Archaeology Symposium during the Hanse Festival on Saturday, May 11.
