Country lane

A typical Norfolk country lane

One of the reasons that i picked Norfolk as a county to photograph was due to its unspoilt nature. For those of you unfamiliar with Norfolk, its an English county that has very few large roads running into it from other areas of Britain. You have to work a little harder to get to the places along the coast using roads that are usually rather narrow.

This lane is typical of the smaller lanes that link up the villages throughout the county. Many of these roads (although not this one) were put in by the USAAF during world war II so that bomb dumps and airfields could be easily supplied. The bomb dumps and airfields faded into memory but the small access roads became part of Britain's road infrastructure.
