Alford Manor HouseALFORD Manor House was open to the public for Spring Bank Holiday (2006 May 27 -29) after two years of restoration work. Very little furniture and artifacts are in place. It was the House itself including the original roof structure, that was be on show.

After the official opening on 2006 June 13, the Manor House will open to the public on Tuesdays and Fridays.

Civic trust chairman, Grant Allan said: "There is an all-singing, all-dancing stainless steel kitchen to service the tea rooms, and we hope to buy a new marquee to seat up to 120 guests for receptions. It will be much more than a folk museum and there is a new lift to take disabled visitors up to the first floor."

The house will have a new role in Alford and be used more by the town. It is licensed for civil weddings.

Sarah Blair-Manning, from Spilsby, has been appointed as house manager, to promote the work of the house.
