Our County: Norfolk

Old Buckenham

Norfolk, England

We have moved to a very beautiful part of England. Similar to home, it is mainly agricultural, mostly flat and full of wonderful people. We are enjoying the history of the area, along with being close to the seaside. Here are a few pictures from our adventures exploring our new home.

Seal Watching (21 Dec, 2015)

For a holiday adventure we headed to the seaside to try and spot some baby seal pups. We loved the trip, saw lots of pups, but it was honestly so very, very cold and wet. On the way home we saw a sign for fresh mussels on the side of the road, so we pulled off, walked down a dark alley where we found some mussels in a hutch, put some money in the box then headed home to try our first experience cooking and eating mussels. I must say, it was pretty delicious. It was about a 50% success rate with the children.

Across the lane from our house, is the Tibenham, All Saints Church. It is a beautiful 14th century church. It has 6 bells, which on occasion we are able to hear ringing through the windows of the house.

We love walking through the church grounds. As Addyline puts it, it is very peaceful and quiet.

 

 

 

 

 

All over England it is easy to find a walking path to get out in nature. We have a land ordinance map of our area and have enjoyed exploring some of the paths near our house. The pictures below are from our favorite path near our house.

We also like to take advantage of living within a 40 minutes drive of the coast. The painted cliffs along the northwest coast of Norfolk is beautiful. Along the way to the cliffs is one of the kids favorite castle ruins, Castle Rising Castle.

Though we love the coast of northwest Norfolk, our favourite coastline is a little closer to home on the east/northeast coast. Here are a few pictures from our adventures a little closer to home. Though we have seen a lot in the year we have been here, we still have so much to explore!
