The last three days of my solo trip to Norfolk and Cambridgeshire, and this time it was the first and last places I visited that I found most impressive. It turns out that Edward I didn’t just build socking great castles and that the direct ancestor of the modern skyscraper is in, of all places, Shrewsbury….
SOK might look like he’s parked behind a WW1 crater somewhere in the north of France, but appearances can be deceptive. He’s at Grime’s Graves in Norfolk, the definite highlight of the last three days’ travels.
It’s been a busy few days! After visiting Newark on Trent, I’ve continued south and finally made it into Norfolk……
My solo sightseeing tour continues…. Since Tuesday I’ve visited Gainsborough Old Hall, Hardwick (Old and New Halls) and Clumber Park.
It’s often struck me, when visiting National Trust-type places in the UK, that our aristocratic families do seem to have more than their fair share of oddballs adorning the genealogical tree….. The Wentworths of Wentworth Castle and Wentworth Woodhouse certainly had their moments….
It’s been a while since we’ve posted anything on Dossers’ Diary. Our only excuse is that we haven’t had much to say…. All that’s changing this weekend though as we set off on separate no holds barred adventures….
