Discover King's Lynn on foot with the King's Lynn Town Guides - The Victorian Transformation of Lynn's North End

A walk to mark the 150th anniversary of the Alexandra Dock (1869- 2019) which took away the ancient Fisher Fleet. Fred Savage built his New St Nicholas Ironworks adjacent to it. What were the consequences for the fisherfolk? This includes walking to Crossbank Road and Fisher Fleet before turning to visit Pilot Street - the High Street of the North End. To finish the tour at St Nicholas where the stamp of the Victorians is also evident.

The King's Lynn Town Guides give their services voluntarily. The money from the walks goes directly to conservation projects in the town.
