Club Run to the Lighthouse Inn, Walcott 25/05/2022

Three Wheelers met at PC on a dry but windy morning for the run down the east coast to Walcott.
The forecast SW wind was present but the forecast all day sun soon disappeared behind clouds and the wind made it fairly chilly at times. Our clockwise route took us through Gresham, Metton, North and Southrepps, along the lanes towards Trimingham and across Mundesley golf course. A section of main road to Paston where we took the back lanes past Bacton terminal to Witton where we decided to head straight to the pub instead of taking an extra couple of miles loop.
The Lighthouse Inn was warm and welcoming and we enjoyed good food, drink and conversation before heading back out into what seemed to be an even colder wind and very black clouds.
Fortunately it remained dry and the hedges provide some shelter as we headed past Bacton Wood to White Horse Common and then up and around North Walsham and Swafield to Antingham crossing. Here Graham headed north for Cromer, while the remaining duo pushed west to Suffield, Town Green and Thurgarton, where Duncan turned south for Corpusty. Our ride leader completed the route via Bessingham, Barningham Winter, Bodham Hill to PC.
