Yesterday the sun came out so we went to explore the Great Eastern Pingo Trail.
Pingos are little circular craters full of water which were built by small penguins 20,000 years ago during the last Ice Age, which was actually colder than this current winter.
The Pingos themselves are not really very interesting but part of the Trail follows the tracks of a disused railway track which is always fascinating. It's sad to think of the work that went into producing some of these rail routes and the extent to which they have been reclaimed by nature, but they do make a good walk entirely independent of roads.
This is Norfolk, so finding oneself in a deep railway cutting feels like the Himalayas.
We did this walk a couple of weeks ago in the snow but I forgot my camera, but you can imagine how beautiful it looked.
This lovely old Road Bridge has been properly reclaimed by the trees. I think it was a branch line. Now it's a Beech-ing line.
This is Oz having an issue with a Squirrel.
After leaving the old Railway we headed into Hockham Woods where the Forestry Commission are working.
This was a pile of logs. Thetford Forest once supplied all the Pit Props used by the British Coal Industry. Honestly!
We ignored the Forestry Operations. I think they are performed by Tree Surgeons.
