Quick! To the Aerodrome!
Well, I say "quick" - it took me an hour to walk there, which isn't too bad considering it's about four miles away.
Anyway, the purpose of this walk was threefold:
1) To make the most of a splendidly warm, sunny Spring day
2) To see how long it would take to walk to Northrepps Aerodrome - somewhere I've been meaning to walk to (rather than take Broom) for ages
3) To try out a map & photos combo that I've concocted. Following on from the previous post, I've come up with an alphanumeric system of linking my photos to a map of the walk.
I started from up there near The Warren (I'm not telling you exactly where as then you'll know where I live!), and made my way south to Northrepps. My stopping points to take the photos are listed A-J, while the photos themselves are listed 1-15. As you can see on the map above, and the photos below, I've combined the two values so you can see where I was when I took the photo and what the photo is of.
|A1 - Northrepps church from just past the Pit Road and Rectory Road junctions heading towards Southrepps|
|B2 - Thorn Hill Plantation with the railway line running between Roughton Road and Gunton|
|B3 - Bear's Covert and Woodland House in the background, with Northrepps Church again on the right|
|B4 - The Rectory with Frogshall and the Furyhill Plantation behind it|
|C5 - Railway line heading towards Cromer, although the next stop is Roughton Road|
|D6 - The trees in the middle distance are the Copt Hall and Nursery Plantations|
|D7 - The Upper Plantation|
|E8 - The Nursery Plantation in the distance|
|F9 - Northrepps Aerodrome - aka Northrepps International Airport!|
|G10 - I don't think those contrails were made by anything that took off or landed here (with the possible exception of Concorde...)|
|H11 - Sadly, the highlife isn't for everyone|
|I12 & I13 - To Roughton Road (top & bottom left), To Gunton (top & bottom right)|
|J14 - Suffield House with Northrepps church in the background|
|J15 - Bear's Covert and Woodland House in the far distance|
So. What do you think? Does it work?
