The Back Way Around Lound

2nd June and the day starts bright. Although it’s a Thursday, thanks to the Queen’s Jubilee, it’s also a bank holiday…which means Sunday bus services. We decide not to go far from home and bus to Hopton, the first village south of Gt Yarmouth and Gorleston.

Hopton Church…

A few 100 yards and a bramble-guarded footpath bring us to a woodland…

2nd June 2022

Through which a gentle stream trickles…

2nd June 2022

To drain into a delightful sunlit pool…

2nd June 2022

Do not tell me that fairies don’t dwell here

2nd June 2022

And to prove this is a fairy tale woodland, here grows foxgloves…

Out of the woodland and across the fields.

Here’s where the lettuces grow…

We emerge into the village of Lound but hurry on. A greenway takes us to Ashby St Mary… more poppies!

2nd June 2022

From Ashby church (no village in sight) we veer wide to approach Lound from a NW direction, not taken before though we’ve visited the village many times

2nd June 2022

Before we reach the village-proper, we turn onto another way-marked path…

2nd June 2022

Up, up a path, threaded between fields…

2nd June 2022

We’re on the road back to the buses that’ll take us home

And of course, we stop every few steps to take flower pics… and such (See Tuesday Treats)

    Isn’t it annoying when bus schedules slow down on holidays?
    There is no way fairies do not dwell in there!
    Lovely walk, Crispina.
