The Bure Valley Railway and some Norwich Graffiti, Norfolk - 26th May 2013

It's Day Two of the birthday weekend, and we head back to Wroxham - this time to the railway-in-miniature that is the Bure Valley Railway. From there's it's a leisurely 45 minute ride on the narrow-gauge railway through and to Nosher's old stomping ground (for 6 months) of Buxton, Brampton and Aylsham. There, we eat a picnic before the return journey and a poke around the signal box back at Wroxham. On the way back through Norwich, we stop off to inspect a car park whose walls are festooned with graffiti (in what looks like a managed project) as well as the now-derelict former-HMSO building near Anlian Square.
