Heritage Open Days Saturday and Sunday, 11-12 September
This weekend will again see The Ipswich Society organising the hugely
popular Heritage Open Days. We are fortunate again to have Ipswich
Transport Museum participating by supplying a veteran bus to link
between some of the properties. The bus departs from the Custom House
on the Waterfront at 11 am and then every hour until the last journey
at 4 pm. The route is as follows:
Waterfront - Fore Street - Bolton Lane (for Christchurch Mansion
and Freemasons' Hall) - Henley Road (Ipswich School) - High Street
(Ipswich Museum) - Museum Street (Arlingtons) - Friars Street (Willis
Building and Unitarian Meeting House) - Falcon Street (St Stephen's,
Tourist Information Centre) - over Stoke Bridge to New Cut West
and Felaw Maltings for an overview of the Waterfront - Russell Road
(Grafton House and Endeavour House) - return to Waterfront.
There are approximately twenty-six buildings participating in this
year's event. They represent seven centuries in the history of Ipswich,
providing a chance to see inside historical buildings, many of which
are not normally accessible to the general public. There will be free
guided walks on the Saturday and Sunday led by Ipswich Tourist Guides.
All information will be in our leaflet available from mid-August at
the Tourist Information Centre, museums and libraries.
