Kings Lynn is a short trip by train from Downham Market so it would have been rude not to have visited it. We’d heard tales of how run down it is and weren’t expecting much. The centre is pretty run of the mill but if you head down towards the river you find yourself in the middle of a much older town with a wonderful mixture of buildings.
Gordon was in his element as there was water and boats to look at
Kings Lynn has obviously been susceptible to flooding! The heights as marked on St Margarets Church are not that impressive compared to high water marks on pubs in York until you realise that you’re a block away from the river here.
Gordon took the opportunity to visit the local Halfords and B & Q while I treated myself to a leisurely stroll through ‘The Walks’, a lovely park which has been developed over a couple of centuries.
All in all, a very pleasant day out.
