Sheringham Park

I took this photos over the early Bank Holiday then did not have time to tell you about the visit. Sheringham Park is a National Trust property on the coast in Norfolk (Near Sheringham, obviously).  Had some bluebells but the heat had nearly done for them but the Rhododendrons were coming out beautifully. 

There were several trees in the lower part of the park with the most beautiful "lattice" bark pattern.

We walked all the way through the park to Weybourne station on the Holt to Sheringham North Norfolk Railway. Look its Thomas!  Packed with excited kids.  We stopped for a while to enjoy the steam trains, a cup of tea and a bench.


Walking back through the park we found just enough energy to climb the viewing tower to look over the trees.

Would recommend a visit, but two things - bank holidays in good weather makes it very, very busy. ~And lots of dog owners who think you all like their mutts and that those long leads are not a trip hazard! If you are not a NT member the car park is £6.

Could not find enough benches in the shade as the place was packed with people, so we popped round the corner to a local Woodland Trust area (Pretty Corner Wood - aptly named) and had a cool rest on the picnic benches on one of the highest points in Norfolk (90 mts) looking out to sea. it was very hazy but there is sea at the bottom of this valley - a small coaster just went by honestly!
Tried to stay out late enough to miss the traffic coming home but so did everyone else so it was a slow crawl back.
