Sunday Picture Post: Norwich and its Heath

Fungi season’s begun. So it’s off to Mousehold Heath for us. A bus to Norwich. A walk through the cathedral close

Norwich cathedral, south face: 6 Oct 2020

Then up the hill. Not high, but sufficiently steep. It’s where Robert Kett and his rebels set camp. (See Kett’s Rebellion)

Heather thrives on the heath: 6 Oct 2020

For centuries the heath was given over to sheep. Now, though much reduced in area, it provides the people of Norwich with a wonderful woodland interspersed with heathland

Hills, dells and dales: 6 Oct 2020

Parts of the heath were quarried for sand and gravel. Now reclaimed by Nature they tax the legs!

Bracken and pine: 6 Oct 2020

A woodland walk: 6 Oct 2020

The unexpected: 6 Oct 2020

A wall that begins nowhere and ends nowhere. It’s a mystery to me

Magnificient trees: 6 Oct 2020

Out of the woods, returning to Norwich to catch the bus.

Quayside & River Wensum: 6 Oct 2020

Renovated riverside houses: 6 Oct 2020

But I remember them as rundown, ramshackle struggling one-man businesses

And a last look at the cathedral. As you can see, we’d been caught in the rain

Hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.

Oh, what’s that? What about the fungi we found? I’m saving that for Tuesday.
