Sunday Picture Post: Thirteen Miles to Norwich

Tuesday 1st September seems so far away now. But it’s a walk I’ve not yet shared, and so I will.

At Lenwade, the village after Gt Witchingham: 1 Sept 2020

We caught a bus to Norwich, then another heading out to Fakenham, and got off at Great Witchingham where we picked up Marriott’s Way… and walked the 13 miles back to Norwich.

Marriott’s Way Railway Art: 1 Sept 2020

Marriot’s Way makes use of a disused railway track. Some of the rails have been turned into sculptures, each attached to a most uncomfortable seat.

Marriott’s Way runs mostly through woodland: 1 Sept 2020

Speed-curbing barriers warn of the approach of a road crossing

Oak leaves in the sun: 1 Sept 2020

Pylons march across the pastures: 1 Sept 2020

Two passions in one: Pylons and Rivers. This is the Wensum. Marriott’s Way crosses and recrosses it many times on the way to Norwich

Attlebridge: 1 Sept 2020

The level crossing gate at Attlebridge. This used to be my furthest walk along Marriott’s Way. Now… peanuts!

Ash leaves in the sun: 1 Sept 2020

The sun did shine strongly. Not the best condition for woodland photos.

And once out of the woodland, the sun hid behind clouds

One of the many bridges over the Way: 1 Sept 2020

1 Sept 2020

Only 8 miles to go…

Random art: 1 Sept 2020

I don’t know the origin of this, but it’s characteristic of the Way

1 Sept 2020

Wow!!!! Go walkers, go!

River Tud at Costessey: 1 Sept 2020

The Tud is the most excellent of paddling streams. Here it is nearing its confluence with the Wensum at Hellesdon

Hellesdon: 1 Sept 2020

The last road to cross. From here on the roads fly over while the Way crosses bridge after bridge over the Wensum. But I’ve covered this section so many times, I shan’t repeat it here. See Sunday Picture Post: Bridging the Wensum posted 2nd August 2020

Just note: two and a half miles to Norwich

My last shot of the Wensum as it approaches the bridge on Mile Cross Road, Norwich.

And was I tired at the end?


Did I ache?

Perhaps my back twinged a bit.

Were my feet sore?

Naa…yes, I confess. But only the right one

Photos of flowers and fungi from this walk and others (5th & 9th September) can be seen in “Tuesday Treat” (on Tuesday!)

  7. Enjoyed the railroad art. Reminds me how the Union soldiers would rip up the rails in the South and bend them around trees – Sherman’s Neckties.
