County Hall – Trowse’s Blot on the Landscape?

chfi

I don’t think I’ve ever gone past County Hall and thought ‘What a wonderful building..’.  Many times I’ve thought the opposite. I would imagine there have been thousands of people who came into Norwich for the first time, seen County Hall and had an impending sense of gloom. Cover it up, knock it down, clad it with something that lifts people’s spirits as they are stuck in the traffic queue outside it every morning. Anyway, for the first time I looked at the Hall (at night) and thought to myself  “That’s better!”. Have a look at some photos.. [Read more...]

Little Trip Down Memory Lane – Trowse Photos

gallery_det_104_1#E1CD

Whilst pondering on what makes Trowse a special place, I came across some old photos from about ten years ago.I quick whizz through made me realise the things that make the place so special are its people, sense of community, and how the whole design of Trowse facilitates a greater sense of community than any other place I know of in Norfolk.  It’s great to have the school at the heart of the village, along with the common and swings, closely followed by the pub and shop!

Beast Bread I’ve Tasted for Ages – in Peter’s shop

PeterBread

I’m a sucker for great bread and cakes, but much of what we buy is so, well, rubbish. So it was with a joyous heart I tried some of the new bread, pastries, buns and cakes available in Peter’s shop.

The loaves are delicious (I’ve already eaten three!) and have rediscovered how wonderful good bread is. Also, chelsea buns, fruit loaves and pecan pastries available through the shop are sooo good. Not good for diets, but a wonderful pleasure to eat. [Read more...]
