My challenge
One hour fast walk every day

Day 18:

The nearest town to where I live is Kings Lynn. My walk today followed a brief but necessary shopping expedition. I enjoyed walking around some of the old parts of town. As the photo shows there are  remaining narrow cobbled streets with old merchants houses leading down to the estuary. It is interesting and in the light of current Brexit chaos, perhaps ironic to note that the prosperity of Lynn as a port was due in large part to being a member of The Hanseatic League. This provided trading arrangements with mostly German merchants and was at its peak in the 1300s and 1400s. These days the area of old Lynn is sometimes used by film and TV companies, usually to depict Victorian conditions.
