We virtually abandon the cars on the field for the day as for showing the car everyone gest free travel on the trains and vintage buses all day, we normally only arrive back at the car late afternoon for a rest before the drive home.
So around 10am Gill and I took the early train into Sheringham from Holt, drawn by GWR 56xx 0-6-2 Tank.

We had a lunch appointment with other members of our group at The Lobster, Gill and I arrived first to sit in the sun with our drinks, other members wanted to sit under a large gazebo out of the sun where there was a group playing, loudly, even worse Country and Western and Sea Shanties, spoilt the Crab sandwiches for me but everyone else seemed to enjoy it. Funny how all their songs are about far away, but far away they where not. Sadly they didn't know any heavy stuff!
Gill and I returned to Holt Station after lunch, we had a choice of transport at the station, either the vintage buses or the train, we chose the train. We just missed the Diesel hauled service and again where behind the 56xx. The LNER B12 was also running however we only saw it at Weybourne where the services passed.

Holt is a pleasant market town, a little upmarket with property well sought after, it has some nice quiet streets with unusual architecture, and the very large Gresham Private School. We browsed a few shops and galleries, then had a cold drink out of the hot sun.
|Note the unusual window and door detail, some form of Alms houses.|
