Blickling Hall – four different views

Earlier in the week we did a 30 mile circular bike ride out from Holt to Blickling and back – all on quiet back roads  – even the A roads were quiet!

Blickling6Stopped outside Blickling Hall for a rest and a photo – one of my favourite National Trust properties – reminds me of my time when I worked at Wicken Fen – part of Blickling Hall housed the Regional Office – many a happy trip up to ‘Blickers’

Blickling1 2Found this picture from 1966! Me with mum and gran outside Blickling Hall

Blickling5The Christmas trees looked good so we thought we would return another day when it was dark

Blickling14pm on Boxing Day – it’s coming to life – still too light – off to the fabulous Bucks Arms for a pint (or two)

Blickling3Got a seat and a pint

Blickling2A well stocked bar in a friendly traditional pub  (owned by the National Trust but not run by us)

Blickling4That’s better!

But still no sign of the snow……
