Sir Robert Walpole is recognised as Britain’s first Prime Minister making 2021 the 300th anniversary of his appointment by the King in 1721. He began building Houghton Hall at this time and his social and political life are interwoven with Georgian Lynn having been the town’s MP for 40 years. This walk, with Dr Paul Richards, traces the people and places associated with Walpole with visits to key buildings.
