Can you guess the location of this Postcard Poser? The building in the picture below was built in the late 15th Century and it has seen many historic events over the years. In 1648 it played a very important role during one of the towns most important historical events. The building remains to this day and is still a popular destination for the community.

For those who are new to this feature on our blog,  we share a postcard-style photo taken somewhere in the UK. It could be a particular property, a famous landmark, or just a view of the town centre. All you have to do is tell us where the photo was taken in the comments section below.

You know, I do believe it’s the Old Seidge House in Colchester… wherever that is. It’s lovely anyway.

Well done Julie you were the first correct answer! It is the Old Siege House in Colchester. Congratulations to everyone else who got it correct too.

I think we’ll make the next one a little more tricky! :)
