Today was our first (and only) day without cycling. After a late breakfast we set about the job of sight seeing in Ely. It is a lovely city with much to explore and we wiled away most of the day walking about the city and paying homage at Cromwell's House and also visiting the Ely museum.
The Riverside Inn is definitely ...
... wind. Very hard going as you can imagine, but eventually we made it into Ely to find the earnest coffee shop to not only have a warming drink, but to also use their facilities to change into some warm and dry clothing.
We managed to check-in to the hotel at about 1:30pm and then off to Prezzo's for a bit of late lunch. Not before the heavens opened again for a tremendous heavy shower that seemed biblically fitting for the city we were in.
... Ouse. we now started to get an appreciation of the vast flat fens where you can see for 20+ miles in each direction.
Our final stop for the day was a Downham Market at a very nice B&B called The Dials. It was built in 1750 and we were give a lovely room in the loft of the house with old beams and tiny windows. The town itself is not the prettiest but there is was one restaurant that had rave reviews called Palmers. ...
... He was a really nice chap and came and had a good look over the bikes as we were leaving.
It was a reasonably short ride today taking us further westward to the west coast of Norfolk to a place called Hunstanton. After skirting around the beach area, we headed back inland through Holkham Hall estate, a vast area of land with deer running free and a large house built in a Palladian style.
Located in the grounds of Oxborough Hall the current chapel dates from the 1830s. It was constructed around the time of the Oxford Movement prior to the dominance of Neo Gothic architecture. It is a relatively plain red brick building overlooking meadows.
