My blog is still trapped in my visit to Norfolk, which was a few weeks ago now, it is a very nice place to be, I might add; but it isn’t doing much in way of getting this blog back up to speed is it?.
We stayed in Holt; which is a very pretty Georgian market town, which seems stuffed with beautiful architectural detail, especially made of brick
with quirky roof lines at every turn
Can you see the brick detail in the gable end of this next property?
A closer look, set in brick, the build date of 1744
A terraced row
There are some fascinating shops in Holt, the book shop wasn’t open when we were window shopping on the Sunday, however Mrs Ogg tells me it a shop frequented by Camilla.
You didn’t need to go in though to imagine what it might smell like.
I’m sure Mrs Bee would have like a look at this book, I’d have loved a peek at the ilustrations.
We were very taken with the shop Old Town Outfitters, which sells clothes which are made to order, in very pared down utility sort of style, Mrs Ogg described them as being the uniform of art lecturers and creative types; we could only press our noses at the window, as it was the sort of place you ring the bell to be admitted. I deeply admired the pile of brown paper parcels on the counter awaiting dispatch, even my Mum would have approved of them and she was something of an expert at brown paper packages tied up with string. I don’t seem to have any photos of Old Town Outfitters, but this is the place to look to get a flavour, (it is a bit of a quirky website) enjoy.
