Blakeney #24


During the week we’ve been driving to and fro through Stiffkey, a delightful village, probably staying that way because the through road is narrow, without pavements. The traffic jams, particularly this week because a craftsman was rebuilding a lovely cobbled flint stone wall and the road was single track.

Flint cobble construction characterises walls and houses around here. It’s beautiful, with flint cobbles recovered from certain beaches. The flintmason’s work is meticulous and time-consuming.

However, this week, a passing coastal bus clipped the wall under construction, spoiling weeks of work. The driver narrowly avoided a kick in the cobbles!

    Bloody hell - have you got a job with the Norfolk Tourist Board? Booked the B&B already and are on our way.
