X – X-Ray (Norfolk)

The A to Z Challenge has given Barn & Beach a new lease of life in examining the environment in which we exist. We like to think of the challenge as a small X-ray of what is listed as the fifth largest county in England. Interestingly dropping to nineteenth when it is ranked by population.

The focus was mainly on the North east corner spreading down into The Broads ‘Britain’s Magical Waterland’ as it is now titled, although will remain in most peoples minds for a long time as ‘The Norfolk Broads’.

There have been the opening of discussions, not of any great academic basis but food for thought;

Vernacular 
Eco-Tourism
Open Gardens
Guest Blog

All invited comment and certainly received some feed back and helped Barn & Beach re-think its position in the community.

New places were visited;

Coltishall
Ingham
Jarrolds
Upton Broad

And of course the Flowers and fauna for which the county is renowned got a mention too;

Lapwings
Quags (Kelling)
Upton Broad (again)

So with two days to go and two more offerings to come it has been an eye opener and has certainly encouraged Barn & Beach to dust off the rucksack dubbin the boots and get out there, its a big county as @wunjot testified in the Guest Blog so much to see and do, we just have to live it a bit more. Four years after arriving there are so many places to visit, might even revisit the challenge again next year! The material is all here…

Visit Norfolk in 2014, so much to see and do and with the opening of the A11 imminent, I drove up a complete new section tonight, closer than you think.
