IN KING’S LYNN
Our first building of the day is sadly not being used for anything. It used, in the days when such things existed to be our main Post Office (we now have the services of a few cashiers at WHSmith instead), and no subsequent use has been found for it.
Now we have some buildings near the train station…
From here, since we are at the start of St John’s Walk, we enter the parkland area…
On our way from the South Gate to the Great Ouse we get a glimpse of the Baptist Church.
Looking across the river, we get a glimpse of West Lynn Church (one can use the ferry if one wishes to get closer, or walk down to the road bridge and cross there)
Near Marriott’s Warehouse one can see the Rathskellar wine bar…
The Rathskeller, with a side wall of Marriott’s in the background.
We finish this section with a few quirky images from the town centre.
GAYWOOD AND PLANNING PERMISSION
My aunt had noticed a cause for concern in a planning application for something in Gaywood, and as we were heading for Sunday lunch with my parents in East Rudham anyway we went via Gaywood. We actually saw no evidence there of the planning application that had caused the concern, but did see another, for an extension of the pub. The original planning application that had been brought to my aunt’s attention was for a small new build, and these photos from the area in question show, a plain concrete box which is what apparently was on the table would have been very inappropriate.
A PETITION TO THE GOVERNMENT ABOUT HEDGEHOGS
Dedicated followers of this blog will know that yesterday I put up a post supporting a team4nature thunderclap. I am finishing this post by linking to an official petition to the UK government to give hedgehogs better protection. The petition can be viewed here (note and apology to my international followers – you have to be a British citizen to sign petitions on this site).
