11th April, we catch the bus into Norwich, and out to Swardeston, a Norfolk village with two commons, an upper (dry) common and a lower (wet) common. It also has a delightful walk through the Tas Valley. We continue the walk along to Intwood. The walk’s not too soggy, no need for wellies. Please come along with me
The Upper Common where cricket is played
The village pond… cos all villages must have one
The Lower Common, beloved of dogwalkers
Then across the road… oops, watch out for tractors
And into the meadows… we walk the dry path, at the top and leave cattle and heron to wade through the mud
One of my favourite trees is here…isn’t she fantastic!
And into the woods… well, more of a thorny copse
Across the tiny bridge over the tiny fairies’ pond…
And across the fields…
Thereafter by road to Intwood just in time to sit in the churchyard and enjoy our packed lunch
Now heading back to Swardeston to catch the bus home we cross the tiny River Tas
And a last look back…
That’s all folks for another week. Hope you enjoyed the walk. With the bluebells now out, we could be in for proper treat next week!
