Sunday Picture Post: An Uncommon Common

Friday 8th April, a bus into Norwich, another bus out, and we hop off at Tasburgh, a village on the former Roman Road, now the A140. We’re heading to Fritton Common. Despite the post’s title, there’s nothing outstandingly uncommon about Fritton Common. Yet commons themselves are not so common since Parliamentary Enclosure Act back in whatever the day.

So, let’s go. From A140 we turn down Fairstead Lane…

And pick up Boudica Way, an official walkers route twixt A & B. Oh yes, this is Boudica’s country. We Norfolkians are rebellious folk

Down Chestnut Loke…

Up and over Granny Hill… or should it be Cranny?

And a short walk later stands this marvellous sentinel to Fritton Common

It is a bit like walking back in time

And you can’t have a common without a pond. Fritton has several

More pics from this walk next week, for we’ve yet to return to the Roman Road.

Hope you enjoyed

    I am so jealous.
    My back does not want me to walk.
    Really must start trying again.

    • While I was ill with ME/CFS I was barely able to walk around the house. No words can express the joy I now feel at being able to walk again.
      I wish you well with it. A little at a time, that’s the way to do it

    Lovely walk. I am always interested in terms like “common” or “dene” as another Brit uses. Plus names like “Morningthorpe” are cool, too. Always an enjoyable time with you.
