Fungi season’s begun. So it’s off to Mousehold Heath for us. A bus to Norwich. A walk through the cathedral close
Then up the hill. Not high, but sufficiently steep. It’s where Robert Kett and his rebels set camp. (See Kett’s Rebellion)
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
Parts of the heath were quarried for sand and gravel. Now reclaimed by Nature they tax the legs!
A wall that begins nowhere and ends nowhere. It’s a mystery to me
Out of the woods, returning to Norwich to catch the bus.
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.
