Radio Car Travelogue 8-12 December

Monday and two jobs around the City. First, a visit to the brand new YMCA which opens for business proper on January 5th. They've just taken it over from the builders so before it's commissioned they're working through the management and running routines to make sure that it all functions to it's best capabilities. It's near the end of a long road for John Drake and his team. No doubt we'll be back in January.
Then - to the woods - and I discover yet another secret place hitherto unnoticed. It's the woods immediately behind County Hall. Yes, that's right. With Mark Webster from the Green Gym we climb the leaf strewn bank up to where this archway stands. They believe it's an old chapel but are appealing for anyone with more information to get in touch. This afternoon volunteers will help clear the old foundations and cut back the overgrown holly. Very seasonal.

On Tuesday we began our "Extreme Norfolk" series and I was sent to find the highest spot in Norfolk. It prompted some debate but this was the view 358' up on top of Beacon Hill at Roman Camp Aylmerton looking out over the North Sea.

Wednesday it was to the other extreme! The lowest part of the county which was deemed to be on land at Green Marsh Farm at Terrington St.Clements. Again more debate as to whether this really was the lowest spot. A former owner told me how they were advised to build small hills for the sheep to stand on during high tides !


Thursday and we're in search of the hottest spot in Norfolk. The Met Office stats said that it was Gorleston so that's where I ended my quest and took refuge during the bad weather with the National Coastwatch Institution in their watchtower at the end of the harbour mouth. This was the view of the new outer harbour.

Friday and we continue with the Extreme Norfolk series. Today, the smallest community and I'm between Docking, Thornham and Brancaster where the tiny lanes converge here (pic) at Choseley. About thirteen houses half of which are holiday homes so very few residents. The notice attached to the give way sign says 'this is not a bus stop!'
Before I leave some builders show me a plaque on the garden wall. Choseley used to be a leper colony but the site had to be cleared before it could be redeveloped hence the notice.

Finally, I tour around Barwick (Great & Little) which the local posties tell me has to be the smallest parish in Norfolk with about six houses in total but I couldn't find anyone home on this particular morning! So ends another week.
