Tuesday 1st September seems so far away now. But it’s a walk I’ve not yet shared, and so I will.
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.
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.
Speed-curbing barriers warn of the approach of a road crossing
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
The level crossing gate at Attlebridge. This used to be my furthest walk along Marriott’s Way. Now… peanuts!
The sun did shine strongly. Not the best condition for woodland photos.
And once out of the woodland, the sun hid behind clouds
Only 8 miles to go…
I don’t know the origin of this, but it’s characteristic of the Way
Wow!!!! Go walkers, go!
The Tud is the most excellent of paddling streams. Here it is nearing its confluence with the Wensum at Hellesdon
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
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!)
