Each year the Lincolnshire Heritage Open Days festival celebrates the county's architecture and culture by allowing visitors free access to interesting properties that are not usually open or would normally charge an entrance fee.
This year Saxonhouse opened as part of the festival on Friday 9th and Sunday 11th Septembe. Visitors came to learn about how Saxonhouse was built and discover what life was like in Saxon England in the 7th century.
Both afternoons were sunny and Saxonhouse looked very smart after the repairs to the thatch and the renovation of the daub walls, the lime and the interior paintings.
The visitors were lovely - really interested in the processes and the period - and Saxonhouse garnered new friends.
It looks like we'll do the same in 2017.
