Kett’s Heights: Norwich from on high.

Sunny 0513 163

I FINALLY made it up to Kett’s Heights last week, and instantly felt embarrassed that I’d never made the effort before. For a start there’s this excellent panoramic view over Norwich. Second, a wonderful sense of peace and quiet. And third, well if you’ve got a historical bone in your body, then Kett’s Rebellion of 1549 simply makes more sense from up here. Robert Kett’s massive rag-tag army of rebels were ranged across the high ground from Mousehold Heath to what we now call Thorpe Hamlet. From here, it’s easy to imagine them making camp. From here they held the high ground. From here, in their thousands, I can imagine them feeling pretty invincible.

  2. The very heart of your writing shilst sounding agreeable at first, did not settle very well with me personally after some time. Someplace within the paragraphs you were able to make me a believer but just for a while. I nevertheless have a problem with your leaps in assumptions and one would do well to fill in those breaks. In the event you actually can accomplish that, I will definitely end up being fascinated.

    Its such as you learn my thoughts! You seem to grasp so much approximately this, such as you wrote the ebook in it or something.
