Holkham - Holkham Hall (Norfolk)
|A long walk in the fields, right round to the back of Holkham Hall was rewarded with the sight of two large (for the U.K) Giant Redwoods and two youngsters.
Look out for the ancient ice house on the hill as you wander around.

Mass exodus from Holkham Beach at the end of a hot day
Wave watching - nice way to spend a warm evening!
|On one of the hottest days of the year early September 2012 it was nice to end the day walking on the nearby Holkham beach. Nearly everyone else it seems had had enough and were making their way back home across the vast stretch of sand. As well as the substantial sand dunes, rather unusually the land adjacent to Holkham beach also has an collection of pine trees. Sadly though, not a single Redwood could be found!|
