Epsom and Ewell Group

2013 Norfolk

A look back to our holiday in East Anglia, organised by Bob Hayward. His account is below but it omits the most important part – a huge thank you to Bob for organising a most enjoyable week.

Epsom and Ewell’s Royal Appointment!

"In June I led 29 members of Epsom and Ewell Ramblers Group,on a week long holiday in North Norfolk. We based ourselves at the 17th century Crown Inn in Mundford. This gave us the opportunity to walk in Thetford Forest, and along a section of the North Norfolk Coastal path from Wells Next the Sea. We took the opportunity to visit Sandringham, the Queen was out that day so we just looked around and walked in the nearby Sandringham forest estate.

The weather was fine all week and a good selection of Inns provided the food and drink along the way. The village of Mundford is small and very quiet. The weather allowed us to enjoy a barbecue one evening in the garden of the Crown. The accommodation was varied with some enjoying a whole house, while others rested in the attic of the Inn. We also walked in Brandon Country Park, and around Thetford Town, home of the Dad’s Army Museum. We visited two National trust properties en route to and from the holiday destination, Ickworth and Anglesey Abbey.

The company was good and much fun was had, so let’s do it again soon somewhere. Bob Hayward."
