... and I immediately knew I'd made a wise decision in letting go of the walk for these first six or seven kilometres. After all, I do now realise this walk is a very different journey than simply the physical one.
We arrived at Walsh le Willows and the Church of St Mary the Virgin. We were once again impressed by its size and the decorative stone work around the entrance porch. Its true hidden glory though, was revealed as we stepped inside, looking up we gazed ...

A 'broad' is another term for a lake but they are not natural lakes. Back in medieval times, there was no coal and few trees for firewood so peat was collected and burned.

... Today its foggy in Norwich. The fog may lift by lunchtime. Our accommodation is fantastic - a small but very well appointed apartment not far from the city centre. A bit noisy as we've had the windows open (but nowhere as noisy as the Gower street accommodation in London in 2011). Hope that tonight we'll sleep better.
