New Road

The main road closest to our house is being modified at the moment. It will have some features designed to lessen the likelihood of accidents involving children on their way to/from school following a fatality a few years ago.

It means our footpaths are strewn with all kinds of strange hieroglyphics at the moment, meaningful only to the men doing the work.

However, I’m not sure whether it will be totally successful despite what the active campaigners say. I avoid driving in this area at school journey times owing to the number of children who just launch themselves into the road without looking.

Norfolk Coastal Path

It’s unusual to find cliffs on the Norfolk coast as the land is quite flat. Along the path were plentiful wild flowers so typical of the coast and there was much evidence of cliff erosion. The beach was pebbly, so the sound of the sea could be heard well before you reached the cliffs.

This is the entrance to the Norfolk Coastal Path near Sheringham and the acorn on the gate shows it’s one of the national long distance paths. It’s not a bridleway, just for walkers.
