Listed building reopens in King’s Lynn

August 8, 2018 by  

South Gate, a listed building in King’s Lynn, is reopening after an upgrade.

South Gate was constructed during the course of the fifteenth century. It recently underwent a transformation, which involved the addition of fresh lighting and new information panels. This should mean that the history of the structure is communicated effectively to visitors. Printing services from King’s Lynn can be helpful for organisations inside the tourism sector.

The project was funded by a lottery grant of almost £90,000. However, the Friends of the Walks also stepped up to the plate. The group donated over £3,000 to the scheme. The deputy leader of the Borough Council of King’s Lynn and West Norfolk, Elizabeth Nockolds, has a responsibility for culture and heritage in the area. Councillor Nockolds told the Eastern Daily Press:

“The refurbishment will bring its heritage to life in a much more modern and appealing way, and we hope lots of visitors and residents alike will come along and take a look at what’s new.”

One hope is that replica furniture will kindle the imaginations of visitors to the monument. Another possibility is that enthusiasm levels will be lifted by pictures of how the surrounding settlement has changed down the years.

A model of the South Gate will be displayed to the public. The exhibition will be made accessible for a few hours on Sundays, Wednesdays and Saturdays.
