      Norwich Town City - finally

      July 26, 2022 in England ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

      Dann kommen wir doch noch an, im Herzen der Grossstadt Norwich {Norridsch - gemäss Sheila} 💪 Auf einem kleinen Parkplatz in der Nähe des Market Place & The Forum ergattern wir den letzten (ausreichend grossen) Platz. Als erstes steuern wir zu Imeldas shoe shop - unser zweiter Anlauf für Rahels Blundstone Schuhkauf - und siehe da, die Verkäuferin zaubert mit einem Lächeln eine perfekt sitzende 5.5 aus dem Lager ✅💪🤩 Weiter gehts zum ‚open daily‘ market, einem der grössten und ältesten Open-Air Märkte im Land! Alles bestens organisiert (Eingang A-….Z? … jeder Durchgang mit Angebot aufgeführt). Hier gibt es alles: Streetfood (gefühlt von jedem Land), Getränke, Lebensmittel, Haushaltsartikel, Bastelsachen, Blumen, Coiffeurs, Wollladen, Kleider (first- und second hand)… wow! Wir können uns gar nicht sattsehen & … ah, cool Mittagszeit: Probieren wir doch von dem leckeren Angebot 😋😋😋🥰🥰Read more

      GoExplore

      July 26, 2022 in England ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

      Keine Aufruf für aktive Entdeckungen, sondern ein sehr sehr grosser Sport-Outdoor-Shop, den wir zufällig entdecken! Da sind wir immerhin schon ca. 895m weit gefahren... natürlich biegen wir sofort ab 😎 Drinnen alles was das Herz begehrt an Kleidern, Schuhen und alles fürs Zelten/Camping, Fischen, Biken, Wandern, diverse Maps, und und und …. Rahel: ‚bini happy‘ - ich auch! 🥰Read more

      Nume nid gjuflet

      July 26, 2022 in England ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

      Zugegeben. Dieser Morgen war wenig von Effizienz geprägt: 07:00 Uhr aufstehen und nach 09:00 Uhr erst losfahren…. Naja. Dafür gibt es aber gute Gründe: Unser grosser Gasgrill ist out-of-gas (kein Problem, wir wissen seit Anfang, dass die Flasche nicht bis zum Ende reichen wird) und darum kochen wir alles nacheinander auf dem kleinen Gaskocher: ☕️ im Bialetti, Teewasser im Wasserkocher und Rührei in der 🍳 - wir haben zum Glück Ferien & Zeit & guten Lesestoff!! 😍😍😍

      PS: Sorry, Mary, auch heute wieder blauer Himmel - immerhin ein paar Wolken 😎

      Norwich

      January 7, 2020 in England ⋅ ☀️ 8 °C

      Today work and school started for the London Coles. Molly arrived to take the boys to school and I took myself off on the train to Norwich to spend the day with an old and very dear friend Elizabeth.

      Meanwhile Russell, Henry and Ivy tagged along on the school run and went into town to the Tate Modern. Apparently they were plotting a day trip to Paris - but sadly didn't take their passports.

      Norwich; Urban Ramble, part 1

      July 14, 2020 in England ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

      This urban ramble finds us in the beautiful medieval city of Norwich and is just over an hour from Cambridge. It is the first "big trip" since lock down!

      After checking in at The Maids Head Hotel - claimed to be the oldest hotel in the UK - we walked down the riverbank to the station to start the walk by going up the hill to pass through Rosary Cemetery which was the first non-denominational burial ground in the UK. It was interesting to walk around, before navigating through the ancient woodland of Lion Wood - a remnant of Thorpe Wood which was mentioned in the Domesday Book. Eventually we reached the old Brittania Barracks located on St James Hill, close to Mousehold Heath, with spectacular views of the city; the barracks were the former home of the Royal Norfolk Regiment, but now form part of HM Prisons Norwich.

      From here we proceeded down the hill to the city and the River Wensum, which passes through it. On the far bank is Cow Tower, built in the 14th century as part of the city's strategic defence systems. We had a short walk along the river before crossing the Bishop Bridge (1340) - one of the oldest bridges in England - before doubling back to Cow Tower. We walked along this bank passing the modern and attractive Jarrold Bridge before reaching Norwich Quayside, the heart of the city in medieval times.

      We crossed Fye Bridge and walked along Colegate, with its many historic buildings, before reaching St George's Church and crossing the bridge there.

      Sleep at the Park

      July 25, 2022 in England ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

      Wir sind noch bis Norwich gefahren und haben über die Park4Night-App ein Plätzli gesucht: Gleich neben dem riesigen Sloughbottom Park liegt der Kies-Parkplatz, recht ruhig, kostenlos & das Terrain für den Abendspaziergang liegt direkt vor der Autotüre - nice! 👍👍🥰🥰Read more

      Can I have a look?

      July 26, 2022 in England ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

      Wir werden (nicht zum ersten Mal) angequatscht, ob wir die ‚Van Conversion‘ (Busumbau) selber gemacht haben und ob sie einen Blick reinwerfen dürfen? Natürlich, gerne! Heute Morgen hat sich Linda Shirley alles von Rahel zeigen lassen, assistiert von Nayra. Mehrmals fällt das Wort: ‘brilliant‘ - auch das nicht das erste Mal 🤩Read more

      The Number 13 Bus or the No 6

      August 15, 2018 in England ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

      Decided th have a day off driving and spend 2 nights in one place.
      The accommodation is very good but is done in early bordello style. Or maybe that’s just a description of how untidy we are.
      It has a kitchenette so we could do some in house eating.
      That worked, pub first night and probably Italian the second.
      Having a day in Norwich with the Cathedral and Castle.
      We were to get the No 13 bus on advice of the locals.
      They had moved the stop due to road works and there was some discussion as to where the new one was.
      Amazingly we found it and although we ended up on the No 6 we got to Norwich easily.
      It’s now obvious how they trim the overhanging trees.
      They run double deckers up and down the roads.
      Norwich bus station the size of Strathfield station. Very slick.

      No wonder you like it, grey kitchen and taken over also to blend in the bedroom. Your favourite colour.

      Norwich; Urban Ramble - revisited

      August 15, 2020 in England ⋅ ☁️ 18 °C

      I went back to Norwich with friends from Duxford ("Friday Forum" Plough group) and treated them to the Urban Ramble Tour (parts 1 to 3); there was also time (and inclination) to visit a few of the fine pubs that are present in Norwich, the "City of Ale". Here are a few supplementary images of this beautiful city, presented in the order of the original posts, together a couple of pub highlights..

      Part 1 - The Maids Head Hotel really is a fine place to stay and highly recommended (we were in the Premier Inn, Nelson this time!)
      Part 1 - With care and a good zoom camera you can see Norwich Castle in some detail from St James Hill
      Part 1 - The modern Jarrold Bridge seems to float over the River Wensum (the posts are not part of the structure)
      Part 2 - On the corner of the market square is the Jarrolds Department Store, established since 1770

      The Adam and Eve claims to the be the oldest pub in the city.
      The Fat Cat is usually packed out and serves 30 real ales - in these Covid-19 times, we were able to get a table and choose from only 15 real ales! A wonderful place.

      We are roaming the Bavarian „biergarten“ meanwhile. Best thing you can do in Germany.

      Norwich; Urban Ramble, part 2

      July 14, 2020 in England ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

      After crossing St George's Bridge, we passed the Old Technical School to reach The Halls; comprising St Andrew's Hall and Blackfriars Hall (14th century), they make up the most complete friary complex in England. St Andrew's is the centre piece, as it is constructed in the local flint. This area is known as the Norwich Lanes and is full of interesting little shops.

      Next we arrived at the Marketplace - this has the beautiful 15th century Guildhall on one side and the art deco City Hall, guarded by sleek bronze lions, on another with the market - the largest open air market in the country - nestling in the middle. We walked along the Memorial Gardens to the Church of St Peter Mancroft, opposite the Guildhall, and then proceeded down to and through the splendid Royal Arcade, a beautiful and covered shopping street. This brings you out to Norwich Castle (now a museum and unfortunately closed for the time being) situated on its mound; it was founded by William the Conqueror and was originally a Motte-and-bailey castle.

      Leaving this lovely area we walked to Elm Hill, a historic and cobbled lane and the most complete medieval street in the city; it was derelict and decaying one hundred years ago, but fortunately the Norwich Society was able to change the plans to demolish it
