NORFOLK - PAGE 6 - (06/05)

This latest update to the website will be the last one showing photos from Norfolk.

The photo on the left shows day hire boats moored up at Wroxham whilst the other two images were taken at Wells-next-the-Sea on the North Norfolk Coast. The boat featured on the right is the Albratros, a Dutch sailing clipper dating from 1899 and the last sailing vessel in Europe to carry commercial cargo; now the steel hulled boat is based at Wells-next-the-Sea and used for functions and sailing training.
A Bridge Pilot service is in operation at Potter Heigham, (left photo) local skippers take the controls of boats navigating the River Thurne under the low arch of the medieval bridge.
The rest of the photos on this page were taken at the National Trust's Blickling Hall. The Hall, dating from the early 17th century is considered to be one of the finest Jacobean houses in the country, it was built on the site of a older medieval structure by its then owner Sir Henry Hobart.
As well as the house itself, known for its library, long gallery, arts and furniture there are gardens, parkland and woodland at the estate, (dogs are welcome in the parkland). There is also a art gallery, shop, restaurant, plant centre and a second hand book shop.
