hellington hall

The Griswalds descend on Norfolk. Southwold, sadly is no longer available and in any case would now be too small. Marston Manor, in Dorset, was great but we decide on a family holiday in Norfolk and Hellington Hall is the place.

Five go mad in Norfolk. Well, four do here….

aboard the “Queen of the Broads”

as above (or aft?)



Our adventures included a visit to Norwich Castle, Bewilderment Park, Wells and Walsingham and the model railway, the Broads and Sutton Hoo. Whilst I had many favourite moments one of the best was cycling along the Broads with Sheila, Danae, Louisa and Thom.
