On Saturday 12th Sept I got up real early and bused out to Acle, thence a walk that skirted the grazing marshes as far as Wickampton, just inland from River Yare. 10-miles round trip. When I related the walk to my daughter, she wanted to make the walk too. So again the early rising, this time in the rain.
Yea, well, the word carr does mean wet woodland. So…
Weaver’s Way runs from Cromer (North Norfolk coast) to Great Yarmouth (East Norfolk coast). While some of it follows lesser-used roads, most of its 61 miles are along footpaths and other trackways
Have I said that I love reeds? I love reeds 🧡
The Fleet forms, as it were, the main artery for this part of the draining system
It wasn’t to last. But at least there was no more rain
We’re off the marsh now and we’re walking on a proper road. Single laned with some wide and deep puddles.
It might look like sunrise, and we are looking to east. But this is 9:00 am.
What does one call a gathering of trees? A Twitter-friend of mine suggested an Ent-Moot and we decided Tolkein wouldn’t mind.
Destination reached: Wickhampton grazing marshes stretch down the river. But gates were closed, the farmer moving his cattle, so we could go no further. Myself, I was content to take photos of the clouds.
