Ludham, Norfolk in pictures

For my final post on Norfolk my pictures come from a couple of days in the countryside. We stayed close to the village of Ludham. Well, about a two mile walk away, down a country lane.  It’s a pleasant walk, which one of the locals described as not particularly scenic.  A fair assessment for Norfolk perhaps but it’s all relative!

We found Ludham itself to be a pretty enough place with some lovely thatched properties. There is a pub, a tea room, a church and moorings for boats with a small shop.  There’s also a convenience store in the centre of the village.

Many people spend their holidays on the Norfolk Broads, sailing the waterways that spread out across this area. There are a couple of stopping off points in the area where you can moor your boat for the day and explore the local area or stock up with vital supplies.

Ludham Bridge is one of those stopping off points and just down the road is the interestingly named pub, The Dog Inn. We popped in for a beer to two and a bite to eat. The beer was good but the food only average.

The area also has some great looking buildings included a few featuring the Dutch style gable ends – this renaissance architectural style being a bit of a feature in this part of the world.

This post concludes my look at Norfolk but I’m still going strong with my 366 day challenge so keep an eye out for my weekly updates.

As always all photos here were taken with the Fuji X-Series of cameras and lenses.
