Busy times: – As well as our normal B&B activities we have been heavily involved in the building of a utility room at the rear of the main house. This has kept the blog at bay for a little while.
Lots of new and interesting visitors, but also good to see so many old friends again this year.
Early on we noticed quite a trend of visitors arriving as a result of having followed ‘Springwatch’ from Minsmere, and going to see the reserve for themselves. Until recently we have in the main, enjoyed dry summer weather, which always helps make a visit to this part of the world the more pleasurable. Unfortunately harvest time has turned out rather wet, but let’s hope there is something of an Indian summer to come.
At Framlingham Castle English Heritage have been running a range of interesting well attended events throughout the summer. One of these was entitled ‘Knights and Princesses‘. See pictured below ‘the princess‘ who stayed with us. She is dressed up for the part during her role at the castle.
Many of you will have watched ‘The Detectorists‘ on television last autumn. As a result of its success a second series has been commissioned, which was filmed in Framlingham during August, and it will be screened this coming autumn. The picture shows a scene being shot at St. Michael’s rooms next to the church, along with a photo of the market in the square in Framlingham.
