Historic Churches of Norfolk – Route 15

It seems an age since we did route 15, at the end of June. The route, which started and finished at Acle station, was a reasonably challenging 45 miles in total and filled in the ‘missing piece’ to complete the whole of the north east of the county, from Wells in the west right round the coast to Gt Yarmouth and south to an ‘east – west’ line through Norwich.

The Route:
