Open Doors 2000

In May 2000, the Landmark Trust held their first Open Doors weekend. Having acquired a number of properties requiring more funds than usual, and to promote its activities, it opened 30 properties to the general public on May 20-21, free of charge. One of these was Freston Tower.

This merited a brief mention in the Ipswich Evening Star, as shown.

I was fortunate enough to go along on Saturday May 20, and took advantage of this rare opportunity to see the inside of the Tower for the first time. Not only that, but visitors were allowed on to the roof to admire the views over the River Orwell!

Below are some thumbnails of photos taken on the day. Simply click on the small image to see the enlarged version.
