The Quay at King’s Lynn

The River Great Ouse viewed from Purfleet Quay.

This would be my fourth city on the River Great Ouse – King’s Lynn, a sea port and market town in Norfolk in East England. An uneventful night for me – no rain, no goose bully, no stepping on animal poop, just a still night under merry ‘ole England’s usual dreary winter skies. Enjoy!

The Customs House in Purfleet Quay.

Captain George Vancouver, born in King's Lynn, was not only known the city and island named after him. He is more famous for the charts he produced of the Pacific Northwest which were the result of an astonishing survey of much of the 27,000 km. of coastline in British Columbia.

The Custom House houses a special display of the maritime history of King's Lynn, as well as the tourist information centre. The Custom House has been a landmark since the late 17th century.

King's Lynn is a historic medieval port dating back to the 12th century.

St. Margaret's Church was founded by the first Bishop of Norwich in 1101. The Church has been around for over 900 years.
