Tom I'd love to meet up. For some reason East Anglia has featured widely in the background reading to several of my current obsessions (everything from Orford Ness to pingos in the Breckland). From the look of your website I'm sure we could find some common ground.
Sadly, the January trip is going to be a quick in-and-out with all the kids in tow. It's a wedding, with all my wife's family assembled, including a large number flying in from China, so any spare moments will be spent hobnobbing.
A Fife proverb runs: "Good intentions ne'er boiled a haddock", but in any case I'll put the invite on file until I can wangle a trip with fewer distractions.
