Holkham & Wells

Bad weather caused a poor turnout on today’s 5.5 mile circular walk at Holkham. Angela and Dennis led the nine King’s Lynn Ramblers from the village car park down Lady Ann’s Drive to the new Lookout Visitor Centre, along the Coastal Path to the Beach Cafe and back to Holkham via the town centre.

North Creake, Burnham Thorpe & New Holkham

Les led  6 other ramblers from Creake Abbey south to North Creake via the footpath just east of the River Burn and out along West Street before turning north-east to Burnham Thorpe, where an early lunch was taken in the churchyard. The walk resumed by heading north and then east along the restricted byway to the walled western perimeter of the Holkham Park, which we followed southwards and eastwards before turning south through the Triumphal Arch and on to Whin Hill. From there we turned northwards again to return to the start. The weather was fine, breezy and remained dry, Total distance: 12 mls.

Gun Hill

Derek led 12 other boot-print-making ramblers west to Gun Hill from Holkham Bay:
Where Horse-shoed hoofprints, tyre tracks and pawprints,
Impressed upon the gold, tanned sand where sea-shells lay:
To our right, a thin blue line between sand and sky
Where silently, wild gulls wheeled and floated
Above the vast expanse of sand and slowly skated by:
While that wide sea’s horizon allowed
A gentle warming wind, still summer coated,
The freedom of this Indian summer day.

Returning by the wooded coastal path, a twitching crowd
Searched for wayward migrants: the deep blue sky almost too much for me.
The Yellow-browed Warbler from Siberia had been seen by chance!
But 13 ramblers had deliberately sought
This English autumn-sun dance caught
Beside this blue-skied sea.

Total distance: 7.5m
