Stiff Walk to Stiffkey

Do you remember, Simon, that

stiff walk to Stiffkey? The

promise of a pub lunch

stiffened our stride and we made

good time pounding the coastal path, the

North Sea bristling to our right and

people stepping aside before our purpose:

good beer, an open fire, basic food,

stories of the infamous Vicar, more beer….


Well the pub was closed and the

tightness of opening times then meant a

stiffer walk back to Blakeney, our

thirst by then unquenchable, my mind

full of unanswered questions about a

man so admired yet so traduced, who

fell through fallen women into the

jaws of a discontented lion.


There was only time for one and

no food, but I knew there wasn’t enough

beer in Christendom to riddle me

all those riddles.

      Thank you:) Yes, we English like the simple pleasures, but the complex pleasures are only hidden;) x
