Yet more nice weather! Perhaps the atmosphere will be kind for this whole week while I’m off work?
Once again I wanted to go out somewhere today and make the most of the shine, and so: Burgh Castle. I’ve been here before with Zoe but that was a long time ago and I don’t even know if I posted the pictures here (if I did, I didn’t tag the post properly, oops). It’s an ancient Roman fort, or rather the remains thereof, and is located a few miles west of Great Yarmouth.
Since it overlooks the River Waveney to the west, it’s a particularly good place to visit in the late afternoon, as the setting sun does lovely things to the scenery.
‘Burgh Castle’ is also the name of the parish here, and of course has a church, built in medieval times.
The area has a lot of wide open spaces, and the paths are well-worn.
Pretty much all that remains of the fort is the outer walls, but they are still quite imposing.
The view west from the fort is very pretty, especially at this time of day.
