We assembled outside Gunton Hall. About twenty people, mostly on the mature side of fifty years old, and our erstwhile, knowledgeable leader and guide Michael. The rain was falling lightly, washing away the final traces of the snow that we have been experiencing in this part of the world recently.
Michael gave us an illuminating, fact filled talk on the structure and history of Gunton Hall, then we cheerfully set off on our two mile wintry walk. Our first stop was the lake, which was partially frozen over and looked pretty bleak, there were several Mallard ducks skating on, and enjoying the frozen parts of the surface,
We then arrived at Gunton church, which is an eighteenth century, round towered church, these round towered churches are quite common along the Eastern coastline. We visited the interior of this thriving village church, before setting off on our walk again.
From the seashore we made our way along the country lanes back to base, tired but cheerfully seeking a welcome cup of tea and a comfortable sit down. A walk to remember! 〤◕‿◕〤
