Over the weekend March 30-31 many of
Lincoln’s historic sites opened their doors and welcomed visitors - at
no charge. Jews’ Court again attracted a number of visitors who were
told about its history and significance by Pearl Wheatley. Chris Hewis
was guide to a mounted display of Lincoln photographs from his postcard
collection; he also showed visitors less familiar areas of the building,
including the attic.
Tours looking at historic aspects of the City
were arranged on both Saturday and Sunday. These covered Roman Uphill Lincoln,
Medieval streets and markets, and the city in the Victorian industrial period.
Leaders were Penny, Karen, Avril, Mal, Tom and Nigel. The total count of
tour participants was 337, a very satisfying number.
