Splish Splash in the Land Rover !

This is our last full day on holiday in Norfolk. It has rained all night and although still raining we decide to travel the Byways and BOATs following a route in a magazine.

We start near Holt and soon find ourselves going through the first of many Fords, some a lot deeper than others, some quite scary and all give the car a good soaking. I manage to get out at some of them to take photos.


The journey takes us past Walsingham, so we stop and walk through the grounds to the Chapel. It is very peaceful. The Shrine of our Lady of Walsingham was established in 1061, when according to tradition Richeldis de Faverches prayed that she might undertake some special work in honour of Our Lady.

She built a replica of the house where , in Nazareth, the Annunciation took place. Over the years it has become a favourite place of pilgrimage for Roman Catholics. Today over 250000 pilgrims and tourists visit the site annually.
The final leg of our journey takes us through yet another Ford, this one quite deep and wide, at the side of a mill where the water rushes in. I'm really glad Chris does not break down in the middle I would not have liked to get out and paddle! The sun has now come out as we make our way back to Heacham.
