A record number of visitors attended Ramsey’s Heritage Open Day.

Families came from all over the region and enjoyed an afternoon of strolling around the town’s historic buildings on September 9.

Jane Sills, of Ramsey’s walled kitchen garden, said: “We have had some great compliments about the garden and we had an excellent day. We counted just over 500 visitors which beat last year. We sold virtually all the jams and chutney and could have sold more.”

David Cozens, from the National Trust, said: “Everyone volunteering around the sites did a fantastic job and we had more than 400 at the gate house, Lady Chapel and Abbey House. At Ramsey’s Rural Museum, where there was a craft fair and a dog show running too, more than 1,000 visitors came through the gates.”

Jeremy Mumford, chairman of the rural museum trust, said: “After a slow start, and once the sun started shining, the museum had an excellent day.”
