Travelogue 1962 10 mins

Overview

From King's Lynn through the wide, flat fields of Norfolk to the unique, half-timbered station of Wolferton, the station for Sandringham. Then through a land of 'red farms and flint churches' standing 'amongst the silver birches' to Snettisham, with its name cut in a box hedge. And so to Hunstanton and the sea: an unusual and enchanting journey, illuminated by John Betjeman's engaging personality. Made in association with BBC TV
