We set off from Highview Grange site and drove to Dedham on the 28th October 2011 for a walk from Dedham to Flatford Mill.

We crossed the Fen Bridge but stopped to have a game of Pooh Sticks first. Then continued further along the river.








I has another look around the exhibition again, forgetting the low ceiling n the building I managed to whack my head quite hard...Ouch!!
