I wouldn’t necessarily say this place is my favourite, but it’s a great escape from work. Watching the birds squabble over bread, sitting under the trees reading a book, going for a walk. …contemplating whether I can stay there and never go back to work.
There’s a circular walking on the Blinking Estate (Norfolk) which seems like a normal lovely walk through a National Trust site. However when me and a friend turned the corner nose deep in our map to ensure we were going the right way, we weren’t expecting to come across a large mausoleum! Although we were at a National Trust stately home so, I guess it could be expected? If you go to the left side of the mausoleum of this picture you can peer inside.
My immediate thought was a bridge, but I’ve already done that. So a lighthouse! A tower of light that allows those out in the sea to see the rugged lands.
I remember when I was in Slapton, Devon on a fieldtrip in my first year of University. It was the first time the me being the big city kid I was spent a night out of a city. I was surprised at how dark it can get without light pollution, amazed at the stretches of stars bright in the sky. To top it off there was a lighthouse nearby whose beam of light kept circling the sky.
Without cheating, how would you pronounce ‘Happisburgh’?
