Having missed walking for a couple of weeks due to coughs n colds, we resumed at Kings Lynn railway station for the 9-54 London train,  however, we alighted just 7 minutes later at Watlington, walked west across the River Great Ouse Relief Channel to the East bank of the River Great Ouse itself, this left us a 7 mile walk North, back to Kings Lynn.

2 The River Great Ouse meanders past the ruined church of St Peter, Wiggenhall St Germans. Although this church was indeed still in use in the 1920s.


3 The interior is clear now, when I first saw it, it was like a forest inside.


4 Mr and Mrs Woodpecker cling to a post.


5 Eastern Inshore Fisheries and Conservation Authority patrol the river, Kings Lynn river front  and The Wash.
