The weather was very warm and we took a short walk along a stretch near Swaffam Prior. A local tale says that the Devil came uninvited to a wedding - after being chased away by the villagers from the church, he created the dyke with a great sweep of his firey tail!
Parts of the dyke have been restored and you can clearly see how a ditch was dug and the spoil used to create the dyke.
After lunch with Mike's family, we returned to another landmark nearby, Anglesea Abbey, a stately home now owned by the National Trust.
The most stunning area was this grove of silver birches - I'm told it is a fantastic sight in autumn with the falling golden leaves.
