8th March, it takes two buses to deliver us to Brooke, southeast of Norwich, to begin our walk along the Chet Valley. With so much rain of late, we’re happy to road-walk. So put on your “walkers” and join us.
Wellbeck Road… out of Brooke
The water-meadows alongside the Wellbeck
This is a peaceful corner of Norfolk, scarcely a car all day, it’s like walking back in time
It must be delightful when the leaves appear. Yet the skeletal trees allow a wonderful quality of light
SS Peter and Paul, Bergh Apton and time to rest awhile
We see snowdrops everywhere…
The land here undulates… gently
St Mary’s church at Sisland. We stop here for lunch and sit in the sun
Destination: Chedgrave, where the Chet reaches the Yare and Broads cruisers lay up for the winter
From here we catch the first of the two buses that will take us home. Hope you’ve enjoyed this little exploration.
