Norfolk Branch get Ruined

Although we had a last-minute change of venue, eight of us met at The Queen of Iceni in Riverside, Norwich for breakfast and the usual social banter. Following which we followed Phil and Sarah out of Norwich, where David departed home due to pressure of work. We continued into the countryside on roads both large, straight, twisty, and small, bypassing Dereham and into Swaffham. Here we turned towards Mundford and Brandon ending up at the Barton Mills roundabout where we continued on with another cross-country route towards the A14 and Bury St. Edmunds. In Bury we parked together just outside the Abbey gates then walked across the road into the beautifully kept gardens and around the substantial remains of the Abbey. After our stroll around the grounds in the hot sunshine we collected back at the bikes where Phil and Sarah had cakes on hand for everyone, a very nice touch. Then it was time to depart on our chosen routes home, hopefully passing an open petrol station on the way. A big thank you to Phil and Sarah for planning and leading our group and to Andy and Denise for playing their part too.
