Sunday Picture Post: Coltishall

Coltishall is a village on River Bure, set at the furthest navigable point. We could hire a boat in Great Yarmouth and cruise upriver. But we don’t. We bus into Norwich and bus out again.

Two bridges over the Bure connect Coltishall with its neighbour Horstead: 15th July 2021
A footpath alongside the river offers an idyllic view: 15th July 2021
An old poplar grown to great height on the common: 15th July 2021
The door to St John the Baptist church being open…: 15th July 2021

Of the several pubs in the village (and that is unusual) this is the busiest: 15th July 2021
Canoes and paddle boards can be hired from here: 15th July 2021
Heavy clouds threaten but we’re not at all daunted: 15th July 2021
Away from the river, along the street, some interesting houses… 15th July 2021

Not all is grand: 15th July 2021
A side road takes us out of the village: 15th July 2021
Do you see the face? 15th July 2021
The clouds remain grim, we push on: 15th July 2021
How old is this barn? I do not know: 15th July 2021
The Bure Valley Railway is a 15″ narrow gauge managed by steam enthusiasts: 15th July 2021

We walk a short way beside the railway (it’s 9 miles in total) and sit for a while to eat our lunch and conclude our walk.

Have you enjoyed the walk? A little different to usual. See Tuesday Treat for the Flowers and Flutters seen on the way

    So you visited the House of the Rising Sun (the pub), did you? πŸ˜‰

    In the States, it’s an interesting competition between rail enthusiasts and bikers/hikers whether an old railroad get s turned into an operating museum or a paved rail trail.
