WALKING THROUGH OUR PARISHES 

BAWSEY

 

On June 1st we did the first of our walks starting at East Walton and travelling through the fields of barley up to the piggeries. What an interesting time with an outline of pig farming , a regular part of farm life here in Norfolk. On the hottest day of June, the 29th,  we walked around Harpley finishing with a scruptious tea in David's marvellous garden. The more stylish amongst us equipped themselves with a very fashionable parasol. It was a lovely way to spend an afternoon. Our next walk on July13th started at Ashwicken Church with Revd. Sue Martin and ended with tea in The Old Coach House garden at the finish, thanks to Anne & Andy Parker
