NORFOLK - PAGE 4 (SHERINGHAM PARK) - (06/05)
This page features photographs taken at the National Trust's Sheringham Park in Norfolk.
|There were stunning displays of Rhododendrons and Azaleas at the park designed by the great landscape designer Humphry Repton in 1812. Admission at the time of writing was free, (car parking charge for non NT members). Dogs on leads are welcome at the park which is open all year from dawn until dusk.|
|We followed a waymarked walk of around 5 miles from the new Visitors Centre towards the North Norfolk Coast. The North Norfolk Steam Railway also known as the 'Poppy Line' runs through the estate on its route between Sheringham and Holt.|
|There are great views across the coast and countryside from three viewing towers at the estate, one of which is built on the site of a Napoleonic lookout. Out of 200 gardens created by Repton he considered Sheringham as his 'most favourite work'.|
