Sunday Picture Post: Onward to Halvergate

28th May we bused to Acle with intent to walk to Halvergate. Last week I shared the photos from the first stage of this walk, Damgate Carr. Now onward across Acle Grazing Marsh to Halvergate.

Out of the woods and onto Weavers Way, long distance path

The Way takes us alongside the reed-fringed Fleet, a drainage channel, maybe ancient tidal creek for time was when this entire area was an extensive estuary

All kinds of water weed thrive in the drainage channels

Weavers Ways wending along

A drover’s track crosses the Way… Old Man Willow stands guard. But that’s not the way we’re heading

Weaver’s Way… on and on, now between willows that creak in the wind. A cuckoo calls from the trees, no hope of sighting it

28th May 2022

We slip through a gate. The Way now crosses the grazing marsh. We have cattle for company, the pastures guarded and defined by a grid of drains

A gap in the hedge shows the agricultural land beyond the marshes, that’s where we’re headed

Off the grazing marsh and onto the road…

The road takes us to Tunstall. Despite the parish church is part-ruined, its chancel still serves this very small village

And here is the village of Halvergate, just its eastern arm

28th May 2022

We walk through the village to the church where we sit in the sudden sun to eat our lunch. Then we turn around and walk back again.

Hope you’ve enjoyed. We’re heading to the Norfolk/Suffolk border next week
