Having just returned from a holiday in the East Anglian county of Norfolk, England, I thought I would share a few summer postcards of the things me and the Missus saw in this exquisitely fine place during the hottest summer on record [30C every day there]:
Our cottage sink window, which clinked with Hornet Moths at night
Jarrolds of Norwich, erstwhile printers of Century 21 publications including the 1968 Project SWORD Annual [whom I wrote to in 2015].
An ancient illuminated Norwich cellar, which made me think of Dr.Who and the Daemons! [read Scoop's ace 2015 article on the real locations of this fab Who storyline]
A Rietveld Chair for sale in St.Gregory's
A copy of the flag prop used in the film Swallows and Amazons displayed in the fascinating Museum of the Broads
Kimiline III model in the Museum
Unknown vintage crane truck outside the Museum in a private boatyard
Museum panels about local power boat racer Tom Percival
The delightful Happisburgh beach
and its charming Lighthouse
A tin tin window display in Sherringham
The haunting and remote ruin of St. Benets Abbey
A yacht on the river near St. Benets
The windmill near How Hill Nature Reserve
The grand inner space of ancient Waxham Barn
More on Waxham to follow as well as some short clips.
