Radio Car Travelogue 15 - 19 August 2011









Dr. Will Bowden from the University of Nottingham has returned to Caistor St.Edmund for another archaelogical dig at the Roman site.

Vistors are welcome to watch from behind the barriers that surround the five separate trenches of the dig including the site of the forum in the centre of this walled town. They're here until September and already the earth has yielded more pottery and many oyster shells! Apparently the Romans liked their oysters.
You can follow their progress at http://www.caistordig2011.wordpress.com/ and on twitter #caistor.


Byfords Cafe Store and Posh B & B is one of five new entries in this years Good Food Guide in Norfolk. Owner Ian Wilson is delighted and found out when we made the call to congratulate him! I simply had to check out the premises. Described as 'quaint' it has many cosy places to dine within its Georgian walls and refurbishment has made it up to the minute when it comes to preparing the meals. They also have the store where they sell many chilled foods made to their own recipe. Recipe for success obviously.


Wednesday and we're talking expansion. Eric Kett (pic 1) at Thorpe St.Andrew doesn't believe we need to be building on the proposed sites next to Dussindale arguing that loss of the woodland there will add to the carbon in the atmosphere alongside destroying the habitat. Pic2. with David Allfry the County Councils Highway and Major Projects Manager looking at the Postwick interchange where plans have been put forward for the Postwick Hub - to connect the A47 to the planned Northern Distributor Road. Between that and the nearby Broadland Business Park, a new area designated as Broadland Gate, a mix of industrial/offices.

I was then called away to Roughton. Ironically, the NDR would have sped me on my way but in the nick of time I made it to report on the robbery that took place at approx.0320 this morning at the filling station and shop. The investigation was still underway and the forecourt taped off.

At Bawburgh this split level house on the hillside overlooking the Yare Valley was designed and built by June Farrow and her late husband. On her own now she's objecting to paying the council tax in full offering just £25. She appears in court today. Also this morning, the A-level results are out. Left to right, Erin (who's already got herself a job) Harriot, Head Rob Anthony, Sarah and Lily. None were overly thrilled by their results as they opened them on air.


East Winch RSPCA has taken custody of Mr.Asbo - the aggressive swan that terrorises people on the river Cam in Cambridge. He's settled down recouperating with two ladies (he's on the right) Look at his left foot and you'll see why they're caring for him until he's better.
