Open House

Next weekend is the London Open House weekend. Saturday sees me visiting family in Tiptree for the family tree project, so I’m looking for somewhere local to visit on Sunday. That’s off now, so I might be able to do both days.

The search on the website is, however, pretty badly done and, in fact, not actually working at the moment. Now I seem to remember there was a tour of the Becontree estate and Valance House had an open day. I think this may be a bit too local. I know both the museam and the estate very well. I want to see what is open towards the Eastern end of the District Line – Hornchurch and Upminster, mainly because I can easily cycle there, and it is downhill all the way on the return journey.

I wonder just how many punters some of the events will attract. I really can’t see the estate tour being very well subscribed…
