I do love an old romantic building and, last weekend, I got my fill of them during Suffolk’s ‘Heritage Open Days’. First, there was a Rapunzel-like tower overlooking the River Orwell:
Then came an amazing medieval farm house in Flatford:
and an Elizabethan manor house:
Thorington Hall is one of Suffolk’s best timber-framed houses and I loved wandering through its expansive rooms, spotting its exquisite features and trying to imagine the people who had lived there through the centuries.
Then it was on to Pakenham Mill where we spotted these glorious geese enjoying the sunshine:
And, to finish the weekend tour, we visited beautiful Fuller’s Mill – 7 acres of garden sloping down to the River Lark. The perfect end to our mini adventure.
