Geo-Trips :: The far east again

Walberswick

A drive from Abington, Sat, 27 Jul 2019 by David Howard

With time to clear up more distant pre-Worboys signs I went to one in Walberswick, despite constant rain as soon as I'd left, got there with no trouble, finding the cross country route from the A11 east far easier than battling the A12 through Essex. The bonus was when I went into the local shop for lunch I spotted another pre-Worboys direction sign opposite I had no idea was there as it hadn't been posted anywhere besides a corner of Flickr where it appeared in a photo decades old. I could come back on the A12 as by then the busy period had finished, and came back with twice the profit I expected, balancing the number of times I had gone similar distances for something which had long since been removed. I didn't go on the beach as I almost got soaked walking across the road to the public toilets and wasn't worth getting even more.
