A Christmas trip to the Norfolk Bear Rehoming Centre at Pedlars Barrow in West Runton

Pedlars Barrow at West Runton hosts Norfolk’s Bear Rehoming Centre. Chester, our dog’s beloved bear, came from here a few years ago. This time we were looking for a special bear to give us a Christmas present…we found one called William, who will be going to a very good home! Take a look at the original Instagram post for more photos of Pedlars Barrow and its wonderful selection of toys and bears – a must visit if you’re shopping for children this Christmas…or not!

Video: the crashing waves of the North Sea in November


As I kayaked across the still waters of Blakeney Harbour, I could hear the roar of the waves crashing on the other side of the Point. Every so often a plume of white spray rose behind the Watch House and sea bank.

Pulling the kayak up high away from the tide, I walked across the narrow spit of land and down to where the North Sea was churning the beach shingle in a fierce, winter temper. The waves were mesmerising in the pale, early sun.
