Tuesday Treat: St Olaves

St Olaves (named for the Norse Saint Olaf) is a small village on the River Waveney, the natural border of Norfolk and Suffolk.

We passed through here on our way to Fritton Woods (See Sunday Picture Post) and stopped a while to explore the ruins of the C13th priory…

It’s free to enter, so we can’t complain at lack of upkeep

River Waveney rises near Thetford, just 100yds from the rising of the Little Ouse. The Little Ouse flows west, the Waveney east.

The Waveney empties into Breydon Water where it joins with the Yare and the Bure to flow into the North Sea

It is one of the many centres for Broads’ Cruisers; the boat yards are busy with people preparing for the new season.

We saw loads of flowers along the way too. Perhaps I’ll add those to next week’s treats
