ANGLES WAY – 6. Harleston to Diss.

The weather forecast for today didn’t look good – gales and heavy rain. Set off with hope and by the end of the day we were wind-battered but dry, most of the rain blew through. That is often the case when you decide to go in the face of a poor forecast.

The morning was on good paths with glimpses of the river. Midway we climbed up to the pretty village of Brackish and yet another interesting church. This has been a feature of this walk –  the number of historic churches.

The afternoon in the valley was rather disappointing as we never got close enough to the river, although two swans were spotted on the nest and hobbies were flying low over the fields.

On the way into Diss several restored manor houses were passed – they look in the million-pound class.

Another old inn, The Saracens Head, gave us a fine nights lodging with the obligatory sloping and creaking floors.

      Thanks for your comment.
      My modest ventures are of no serious importance, more of a personal diary, but I hope that they provide a stimulus to explore or dream. Hope you will keep following.
