Hatfield Forest and Wimpole Hall

I do love Hatfield Forest you do have to get there early but the old trees are lovely.

There are birds as well.

Ooh a Barnacle Goose!

There are houses in the Forest!

I like the small cafe. You can have your cup of tea and a bacon sarnie and get joined by friends.

And so to Wimpole Hall.

This little bear was left in the garden - at least he has his blanket to keep him warm!

It was a lovely day and had a cuppa and a scone sitting in the sun.

Still in Norfolk

Well we stil in Norfolk this time we're visiting Fakenham and Houghton Hall

Fakenham Church

There is a nice market at Fakenham and when I'm there in May I'll take some pics.

Houghton Hall was the home of Robert Walpole our first Prime Minister...... it's grand!

impresive stables eh

The church in the grounds. The village was moved to make way for the House.

The ghost in the woods.... Houghton's white deer.

The walled garden is fabulous....

Dad looks wistful. He had been telling me about the first few days of the blitz when he lived in the East End....
