Hickling is one of my favourite places on God's earth. Tonight the sunset was beyond fantastic. It was a still evening. Flat calm. So peaceful. Experiencing is believing.

The N WT is very worth a walk around to see wildlife and lovely views of the Broads. You Can walk back to the village and end up at the pub.
