Manor Lodge Tour - 24th August

The final event in our Manor Memories programme is a tour of the ruins at Manor Lodge.  The tour will start at 10am so please be there in good time so that we do not start late and also so that you don't miss anything.  We'll be meeting at the Discovery Centre.  The tour does involve walking on the grass and there are some difficult steps in the Turret House, but if you are unable to manage them then you can wait downstairs or take a moment for a rest.
