East Anglia road trip photos in reverse order

green highlighted route we took from London to Ipswich (Friday night) up coast to Great Yarmount, over to Cromer, down to Norwich (Saturday night) & then slowly back to London (Sunday)
some of the woodland trails on the Anglesey Abbey
Anglesey Abbey with 25 acres of woodlands
Bury St Edmunds Abbey, Suffolk - remains of the wealthiest and most powerful Benedictine monastery in England, this tower has been "fixed up" but the rest is still really remains

Grime's Graves - only Neolithic flint mine open to visitors in Britain. This ladder is 9m (30ft) down into the mine.
Castle Acres Priory in Norfolk, one of the largest & best preserved monastic sites in England, founded around 1090
Norwich Castle
on the coast somewhere between Great Yarmouth & Cromer
a lighthouse we saw along the way, I had to stop & take a photo, reminded me of Grandma Yeager :)
view from the top of Framlingham Castle
Framlingham Mere
Framlingham Castle - example of a late 12th century castle, built by Roger Bigod (Earl of Norfolk)
view from top of Orford Castle
Orford Castle - unique b/c it's an 18-sided drum with 3 square turrets reinforce it's entrance. It was built between 1165 and 1173
this sign cracked us up, this is our room, but it's also the emergency exit (fire escape out our window) so in case of emergency break the red panel & turn lever to open door - LMAO!
