A few days in Norfolk – Day Four

My final day in Norfolk for this summer saw me spending a couple of hours in Wymondham (pronounced Windum), which is a twelve minute journey on the Cambridge/Ely line from Norwich…

Arrived here around five to  ten in the morning...

I took a left turn out of the station, which isn’t advisible if you want the shortest walk to the town centre (use Station Road!), and I found myself taking a long wander along Cemetery Lane, and approaching the town centre via Whitehorse Street and Damgate Street. Mind you, that did take me past this terraced house in Damgate Street that rather appealed to me…

With the town’s main tourist sights now seen, I headed back to the railway station (via Station Road!), arriving there shortly before midday. The 12:14 train back to Norwich was delayed by ten or fifteen minutes, so I had plenty of time to nip into the Station Bistro to buy a very nice cheese scone, and tin of cola…

Back in Norwich, my train to Liverpool Street wasn’t due until half-four, so I wandered around the city, having a lunchtime pint in The Mischief pub, and taking a few final photos of this trip to the city…

A few days in Norfolk – Day Three

Day the third saw us heading to the north Norfolk coast, and again the weather was fine, sunny and (sometimes very) warm, despite a forecast of rain, which never materialised in any meaningful way. I’d caught the 09.45 Sheringham train from Norwich, on the Bittern Line, and had been joined in the front carriage at North Walsham station, by my old friend (who happens to live in North Walsham).

We alighted at Gunton, the next station on the line, after a short journey, and began our ramble towards the village of South Repps, on the way to which we passed this abandoned pub. Boarded-up pubs have been an all too common feature of the English landscape in the past few decades…

The Suffield Arms at Gunton...

On we wandered to our first destination, the village of South Repps, and we lingered a while at the church, St. James, which is well-maintained, and much used, and seems to play a significant role in the social life of the village.

Along the road to our next destination, St Mary’s Church at North Repps, we passed a field containing these two equine characters; the white horse turned out to be a lot less shy than the Shetland Pony…

By the time we reached St Mary’s Church, we were feeling in need of a rest and some refreshment, so we sat on a bench and relaxed in the churchyard for a while…

Unlike at St. James at South Repps, there was no one around at St Mary’s Church other than ourselves, but when I went inside, I took a liking to a couple of the windows…

We were now heading for Overstrand on the coast, by way of this long wooded pathway, and I couldn’t help thinking of a line of Wilfred Owen’s poem ‘Strange Meeting’, something about a ‘profound dull tunnel’ ;).

Or maybe 'Alice in Wonderland'...

Nearing Overstrand, we passed this rapacious looking Beetle…

We then went down to nearer beach level, and I was rather taken with the zig-zagging nature of this breakwater…

We had a train to catch at Cromer railway station around sixish, so we made our way there via Mary Jane’s Fish and Chip Shop, where we bought some chips to eat on the way to the station. It would have been a veggie burger too, had they not told us they cooked it in beef dripping… 😉

A Morrison’s supermarket was built in the old Goods Yard at the station, and here are two murals nearby…

Yes, two weary ramblers, but a great day out nonetheless… 🙂

A few days in Norfolk – Day Two

So, on my second day in Norfolk, we decided to head to the south-west of the county, buying day-return train tickets to Brandon, and intending to take a scenic walk from there to Thetford, from where we’d ultimately return to Norwich once the day’s rambling was done.

We began by taking a walk from Brandon railway station to the end of the High Street...

It seemed like a good idea at the time to ramble on to Thetford by way of a two and three-quarter mile riverside footpath to Santon Downham, a village en route, and so we duly set off, past a sign that jokingly suggested a machete might be found to be useful along the way. We laughed at this, of course, but sure enough, the further we got into the route, we found ourselves battling along an ill-defined footpath in the midst of five-foot tall stinging nettles, wet undergrowth, midges, damsel flies and sundry other insect life, a couple of example photographs of which I include below ;)…

The first photograph here portrays a somewhat idyllic journey, although even this photo gives hints of the task ahead of us…

Well, life goes on...;)

Yes, well, life goes on…;)

We eventually reached our first destination, a bridge at Santon Downham, and after a rest and some refreshment, we continued on to All Saints’, Santon, along pathways a lot kinder to us than the one on the earlier Little Ouse ramble had been…

On we traipsed past a field with a number of horses, two of which provided a wholly unexpected and bemusing spectacle in the hot early afternoon sun. Yes, they really were be-hooded, and wearing coats, as shown in the two following photographs. Some googling later suggested that both the ‘fly-masks’ and ‘fly-rugs’ being worn, were to afford some protection from horse-flies. Apparently, the horses can actually see through the hoods, but to be sure, it was something that I had never seen before, and it was an extraordinary sight…

It was a hot day, so goodness knows how this horse coped with it all ;)

Once back in Norwich, we said our farewells for the day, and I repaired to the ‘Compleat Angler’ for some food and drink…

When I’d visited the pub on my arrival in Norwich the previous day, and being a long time vegetarian, I had been intrigued by an item on the pub menu, namely ‘Vegetarian ‘Fish’ and Chips’, described thus:

‘Hand-battered Halloumi cheese in coriander & lemon marinade, served with chips, a choice of mushy or garden peas, tartare sauce and a wedge of lemon’…and all for £5.99…

How could I resist…;)

A few days in Norfolk – Day One

It’s all too easy to lose contact with workmates when they move on to other jobs or retire, so I arranged to spend a few days in Norwich last week, to catch up with one such old friend now living in Norfolk. On the internet, I duly bought myself a return train fare from London’s Liverpool Street station, and made my way there intending to catch the midday train to Norwich, on which I had a reserved seat…

A quick chat with a Customer Services representative on the station concourse, and an over-stamping of my ticket, resulted in my catching the 12.30 pm train, and I arrived at Norwich Railway Station around two hours later…

I soon found myself taking refuge from the sultry weather in a pub not far from the station, called the Compleat Angler, where I stayed long enough to down a pint of lager, before booking into my B & B hotel for the next three nights, which was perfectly placed in Riverside Road, not far from the railway station. Once I had settled into the hotel, in the evening I set off for a long ramble around the City, and these are some of the resulting pictures…rather a lot of gorillas I’m afraid…;)

HMS Warrior, and Liverpool Street Station…

I’ve now seen HMS Warrior countless times, and in a variety of climatic conditions, but the beauty of this (restored) iron-clad warship dating from 1860, in Portsmouth Harbour, is always worth another look, so here she is once more ;)…

By way of contrast, here’s something I can’t ever remember seeing before, though I should add that my visits to London’s Liverpool Street Station have been few and far between over the years. I went there this afternoon to collect some tickets for a journey to Norwich next week, and was drawn to this statue on the concourse of the station…

A hot summer’s day in London Town…

For those of us whose homes lie on the Northern Line of London’s Tube network, we’ve been experiencing a lot of weekend engineering work this year, and that was true again this weekend, with no trains running on the Northern Line between East Finchley and central London (on the High Barnet Branch) nor any trains running between Golders Green and central London (on the Edgware Branch). So it was, I found myself on a crowded Replacement Bus Service between East Finchley and St Pancras today, and once we’d all been disgorged into Midland Road, I decided I’d take a nostalgic ramble southwards towards the river, taking a few pictures along the way…

First stop was a visit to the courtyard of the British Library, which is just to the west of St Pancras Station on the northern side of the Euston Road. Here, I stumbled across a display by some Morris Men, as part of an event called The Full English Discovery Day…

Along with the Morris Men, other displays included as part of this Full English Discovery Day, were traditional English entertainments such as Maypole Dancing, but as I was intending to pay a visit to Trafalgar Square for the day’s event there, the London Evening Standard’s ‘Readathon’, I left the courtyard soon after the Morris Men finished their performance. However, before leaving, I took a couple of photos of Eduardo Paolozzi’s 1995 wonderful statue of ‘Newton, after Blake’…

Then, across the Euston Road, for a photo of St Pancras Station, before continuing the journey southwards..

Given the day’s heat, at some point in the afternoon I would inevitably be taking some liquid refreshment, but as tempting as it was, I gave ‘Mabels Tavern’ a miss, as I wanted to make sure I got to Trafalgar Square by four o’clock or soon after…

On I rambled southwards, stopping off in Brunswick Square to buy some food and water in Waitrose, before continuing on past Russell Square, to Holborn Tube station, at the top of Kingsway. Between 1988 and 1996, Kingsway was my working address, and I have many happy memories from those years :)…

When working in this area, I spent countless lunchtime hours visiting Covent Garden to the west, either for lunch or visiting the market stalls there, and the following building, is on the Covent Garden side of Kingsway, at 1, Kemble Street. It’s called Space House, and is a Richard Seifert building dating from 1962…
