After a successful winter lecture series, and with the Spring Conference coming up, the year is moving on – and the first three bookable summer programme activities have landed. As usual, we have tried to provide a range of themes and prices to accommodate as many members as possible.

22nd June: The Railway Archaeology of Marriott’s Way
A free gentle, 2 1/4 mile morning walk along Marriott’s Way as it runs from the site of the site of Hellesdon Station, to Norwich City Station at Barn Rd, observing the surviving archaeology of the Midland and Great Northern Railway line.
Meet at Marlpit Community Centre at 10.30AM. Parking is available at Gunton Lane, or both ends of the route are easily accessible by Red Line buses on Dereham Rd, if you prefer not to walk both ways. No Booking Required

13th July : A Day Visit to Kings Lynn to celebrate the Festival of British Archaeology
Including a tour by Dr Paul Richards and a short talk from Dr Clive Bond at True’s Yard Fisherfolk Museum, plus visits to St Nicholas Chapel, St Margaret’s parish church, and more.                                                             Travel options: After low take up in the past we are not providing a coach for this visit. To travel in a group, meet at Norwich bus station at 8.30 AM to join the 8.40 Excel C Service (£2 each way, or free concessionary travel) or you can travel independently and meet the group at Kings Lynn bus station at 10.15. Returning by the 16:10 bus, or your preference.
£12.50 to cover a light lunch and donations. Book HERE

31st August: Romanesque churches of the Waveney Valley led by Dr Brendan Chester-Kaldwell.
Visiting several very interesting churches, this tour explores the religious architecture of the late Saxon and Norman periods, and the ways in which different liturgical usages and theological traditions influenced their design.
We want to encourage car-sharing for this excursion to reduce the parking pressure at the churches, so with permission we will put participants in touch with one another.  There will be a small fee of £6.50 to cover donations to the churches we visit, and a detailed itinerary will be supplied in due course.
