An Elizabethan manor at Beccles is opening its doors to the public for the first time.

Roos Hall, once home to Nelson's mother, is one of 32 private houses in Suffolk that are welcoming visitors this year.

The Grade I-listed mansion has hosted television programmes and church fetes but very few people have seen inside.

Three dates in the summer have been set aside when the owners, who split their time between America and England, will have a full house.

The Invitation to View scheme, which opens up the county's private homes to the public, is run by the Suffolk Historic Houses.
