A Trip to Blickling Hall, Aylsham, Norfolk - 29th April 2018

Even though Isobel and the boys had been to Blickling Hall recently with the Brussels contingent, Nosher hadn't been since the mid 1990s, so it was decided we would visit again. There was also a chance to poke around in the RAF Oulton museum, where we actually discovered some flight logs from Gunton Field, in Montgomery Alabama, relating to Nosher's grandad supervising some pilot training in a Vultee PT-13 advanced trainer. Finally, on the way back through Norwich, we stop off at the Forum for a visit to Pizza Express.
