We had a very enjoyable visit to Layer Marney Tower. Most  of us arrived shortly before 11 am and had time to explore the gardens before lunch. This was a substantial ploughman’s and desert in the Barn normally used for events like weddings.

Visit to Layer Marney Tower on
 20 April 2023

After lunch we had a guided tour of the main Tower House and the Estate Church.  Our excellent guide told us a lot about the history of the house and the people who had lived there as well as some interesting and amusing stories.  The first Lord Marney (1457-1523) was a powerful statesman, he was the Lord Privy Seal to King Henry VIII. Everyone who came on the visit enjoyed it very much and learned a lot about the history and the Marney family. For further details about the history look here.
