EnglandTuxford - Lincoln - King's Lynn - Cromer - Gravesend - Thriftwood Holiday Park: Vacation Day 06/17

We left a key in a mailbox in a very nice and peaceful campsite in Orchard Park in Tuxford and a minute after we were on the road to Lincoln, where we decided to check the cathedral and the castle.

1 hour parking in Lincoln costs 1.5£

Full name of the cathedral is The Cathedral Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary of Lincoln. Building commenced in 1088 and continued in several phases throughout the medieval period. It was reputedly the tallest building in the world for 238 years (1311–1549).

Maud Foster Windmill in Boston has seven storey and is one of the largest operating windmills in England being 24.38 m tall to the cap ball.

Public library in King's Lynn opened in 1905. This Edwardian library was funded and opened by the philanthropist Andrew Carnegie.

We walked on the muddy beach in Heacham and on our way back we shoot some ducks.

Burnham Overy Staithe Windmill has been converted to holiday accommodation. PRIVATE!

Cley Windmill is a five storey tower mill and was built in the early 19th century. It was converted to residential accommodation.

We finished the day in Thriftwood Holiday Park. We were quite lucky again, because the receptions close quite early, but there was still a guy inside, just leaving, and he gave us a special discount for late arrival and early departure and without receipt. Thanks dude!
