21 Sep: Senior Cyclists' ride from Larling (car-assisted)

Peter Rowell writes: Once again we met at The Angel at Larling and began our Southward ride by taking the East Harling road, turning right to Roudham Hall and the ruined church. The church was burnt down in 1734 when plumbers accidentally set fire to the building while repairing the lead roof.

From there we went to Bridgham and then took the unsurfaced road to the South. We stopped for coffee at the same place where we stopped 2 months ago (my flask which I had left last time was still there). we continued to the end and turned right on the surfaced road, eventually joining the Thetford - Diss road to Shadwell and Brettenham then turning right for Bridgham and back to The Angel (past the St George English Whisky Distillery) for a large lunch. We chatted with some local businessmen including a former member of the Chester and North Wales D.A. After lunch we rode to Larling, Shropham, Great Hockham, East Wretham and Illington back to The Angel. Total 29 miles, sorry no pictures as I forgot my camera. Peter Rowell
