As it was warm and sunny on Sunday, Julie suggested we take Ollie off to the grounds of the University of East Anglia, known by everyone here as the UEA. This well-respected university is just outside the city of Norwich, so only twenty minutes by car. Although it is a busy and active campus, it welcomes local people to venture in, to enjoy the spacious grounds, and the huge lake. (Called a ‘Broad’, in Norfolk) In the view shown above, you can see the modern buildings in their idyllic setting.
Many picnic tables and standing barbecues are arranged close to the lake, for the use of staff and students. On nice days like today, the grounds are well used by many people. Closer to the buildings, you can see the distinctive style of architecture, known as ‘Ziggurat’.
If you are ever nearby, I recommend a visit. There is a large car park, and the flat fee of only £1 applies at weekends. There is also a shop, cafe, and other amenities.
