The South Gate in King’s Lynn reopens to visitors on Saturday, after a month-long closure for a revamp.
New lighting and information panels, funded by an £89,000 lottery grant and £3,500 from the Friends of The Walks, improve the way the building’s history is displayed.
Some of the panels will show the view from each window as it may have looked in centuries past, to show how Lynn has changed around the South Gate. There is also a scale model and displays of replica furniture.
Elizabeth Nockolds, West Norfolk council’s deputy leader and cabinet member for culture, heritage and health, said: “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.”
The South Gate is open to the public on a Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday from 1pm to 4pm.
