Milford Track, New Zealand

Anne Anderson (nee Baughen) kindly sent me a copy of the Listener dated 13 January 2018. It contains an article on Milford Track. Blanche Edith Baughan is normally credited with calling it ‘The finest walk in the world’. I’ve scanned the article and it can be found at www.baughen.co.uk/PDFs/Milford Track – Listener 13 Jan 2018.pdf .
Blanche was one of the first women to go to Royal Holloway College (London University). I do have a collection of most of her books.

Another Norfolk visit

Last weekend we made another visit to Norfolk in our campervan. On the Friday we visited Sheringham Park (National Trust -https://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/sheringham-park) . We returned to Sheringham on Sunday and went on the North Norfolk Railway between Sheringham and Holt. (Recommendation : it is a lot cheaper to park at Holt Station than Sheringham). We thought that the Bure Railway was better than this one. Some photos from both days can be found at the following link:

On Saturday we met up with an old school friend, Glen, and his wife Jenny, at Sandringham. I hadn’t seen them since about 1980 and therefore we had a lot to catch up on. We had a great day out. Some photos from this visit can be found at (no photos can be taken in the main house)

We returned to Reigate on Monday. We stopped on the way back at Audley End in Suffolk. A few photos can be found at (again there were restrictions on photography in the house)
