In linking up with my old college friends, Norwich wasn’t the only place I visited. I also went to Ipswich. Last time I went by car. As I now live over 200 miles away, this time I went by train.

Ipswich is another beautiful old town, though in the 12 years since I last visited it the traffic has greatly increased and many new buildings have been built in the centre. Fortunately the surrounding countryside is still as lovely as ever, although I did seem to be visiting in a rainy patch of weather.
