Next I popped into King's House and Gardens, a grade II listed building, unfortunately I didn't get to see the town regalia as nobody was on hand to show where to go inside the building and registrars organising a ceremony didn't seem to have any knowledge. I did have a good walk around the garden and found some amazingly painted cows among the lovely plants!
Moving into White Hart Street I headed into St Peter's Church, a grade II deconstructed medieval church with a chequered flint tower dating from 1790, with an amazing wood carving of the Last Supper.
From there I walked up through the town to the Guildhall which houses the Dad's Army Museum and was packed full of people! It was a different experience only being allowed to photograph the uniform of L/Cpl Jack Jones and the desk of Captain Mainwaring (exhibits are copyright of the BBC) but people certainly where having a good time.
Next up and just around the corner was the Coffee Mill on Bridges Walk, home of the Masonic Lodge. I had a great guided tour of the building and history of the local lodges - and no funny handshake required to enter the ceremonial area where the grand masters perform their rituals.
A little detour from the Heritage Open Days to stop off by Nuns' Bridges and watch the Tour of Britain race over the River Thet. Then I took a walk along the Little Ouse River back into town passing the Duleep Singh statue.
To finish off I was back at the Charles Burrell Museum and the Jack Jones van returned on the back of a lorry and everyone was waiting for the steam roller to return by road, it was great to see and certainly drew in the crowds.
