Quex bell tower and Pugin’s Grange open today.

Just in case you were wondering what to do today a couple of local buildings that are normally closed are open to the public, as far as I know entry is free.

This is part of The 2009 Heritage Open Days see http://www.heritageopendays.org.uk/directory/laa/Thanet/

The Grange is well worth a look at click on the links for pictures (not very good) of previous open days

you may also find these pictures of the collapse of Pugin’s gallery in 1947 interesting.

It is some time since I went up the bell tower at Quex Park and if I have any pictures I can’t find them

Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
