Sunday Picture Post: To Blickling and Back

28th February, we jump on the bus to Norwich, where we jump on another to take us to Aylsham. We’re walking out to Blickling Hall, one-time home of Ann Boleyn’s family (second wife of Henry VIII). For those interested in the history of Blickling Hall…a feature I posted in 2018.

Love walking rural lanes…

Blickling Church, exquisite flushwork, a specialty of Norfolk

A definite Dutch touch to these *workers houses* that flank the hall

The pub, where maybe lords once mixed with locals

Another view of the hall…

    Try saying Blickling and Back ten times fast…
    I’ve been watching The Last Kingdom and it’s rather cool to see Aylsham in your pics – brings me to all the various old and new names of all these places.
    Beautiful pictures.

  4. May I enquire what photographic image capture device you use as it appears to be some sort of telephotometric device for the transport of the observer to a variety of photogenic delights.
