22nd November now seems so long ago, but let’s refresh memories. A bus across the grazing marshes take us to Acle where we squelch through Damgate Carr (carr = wet woodland) and over the pastures to join with a dry-ish road (yay!) to Tunstall.
Now to continue. We’re walking on an ancient shore, for where now is marsh used to be the mudflats of a wide estuary
This farmstead sits like an island in a sea
And into Halvergate
Looking out to the marshland. That once was sea.
There’s now so few inhabitants in Tunstall, its parish has been combined with Halvergate
At Halvergate church I found mention of present-day relatives of the lady who married my several-times great-grandfather in the late C18th
Time to turn around and return to Acle…
Wide skies and fantastical cloudscapes has attracted many artists here
And back to the pastures where we walk alongside the Fleet
And back through Damgate Carr where I stop for a moment… unable to resist interesting reflections
That’s all folks for now.
I have managed to dodge the rain and evade the winds to get out for a hike this week… so I have fresh photos for next Sunday’s Picture Post.
Hope you enjoyed.
