In Norfolk we did a few walks linked to the Weaver's Way. One round North Walsham passed the possible site of a battle from the Peasants' Revolt of 1381. Nearby was this cross, unfortunately without an accompanying plaque.
Later in the week we visited Castle Acre. The remains of the castle demonstrate the archetypal 'motte and bailey' castle. With free access it is well worth a visit if you are in the area. The village church also has some impressive medieval paintings.

Tucked away in a corridor with a collection of game trophies was this object from the 18th century (or possibly earlier?)
