S.E.R.V Bloodrunners Norfolk.

SERV Norfolk is a charity run by local volunteers that transports blood, plasma, platelets, samples, vaccines, factor VIII, donor breast milk & any other urgently required medical items to hospitals - at night, daytime weekends* and bank holidays. This service is provided completely free of charge, allowing the NHS to divert funds where they are needed most. SERV is a Registered Charity (#284455) that covers the South East of England and is run by dedicated volunteers who receive no financial compensation for their time or costs. I will be supporting them at my Open studio event taking place from 26th May to 9th June inclusive. Open from 11am to 5pm each day.

How Hill.

How Hill National Nature Reserve forms a large area of established fen within the River Ant valley, north of Ludham Bridge. It is remarkable for its variety of Broads habitats. The reserve is of national and international importance for nature conservation, supporting a wide range of wetland plant communities and associated birds, insects and animal species. There is lots to see and do at How Hill. Why not visit our Broads information centre Toad Hole Cottage? You'll find heaps of information, and you can have a look around to see how life was for a marshman and his family in the Broads many years ago.
Turf Fen mill, How Hill is a rare double-scoop wheel and high and low gears for use to suit wind speed.

ALL SAINTS BILLOCKBY, NORFOLK.

Billockby church is a landmark, alone on a rise to the east of the Acle to Stalham road. There is no other building near. You reach it along tiny lanes cut deep between rolling fields, but in fact these lanes run into busy roads, and Billockby church's isolation is something of an illusion. Nevertheless, it is an easy one to maintain if you stand in the tree-surrounded churchyard, the fields rolling away in all directions, without another human being in sight. The thatched chancel is cottage-like, and seemed especially so on a sunny spring day in March 2012, with the churchyard full of flowers coming into bloom. One survival of the collapse was the south porch, which now stands alone against the ruin of the south nave wall. There is some interesting 17th Century graffiti on the eastern jamb of the south doorway

A cold overcast day greeted our trip over the border into Linconshire in search of daffodils fields.
A strange couple of Daffs there :-)

WELLS next the SEA

After a journey to Oxburgh only i find it shut i divert up to Wells-next-the-Sea for a walk along the quayside. The harbour looks beautiful whether the tide is in or out giving the chance of many different photos.
