The Friends of The Colchester Archaeological Trust



Mike Corbishley will be leading this visit beginning with Burgh Castle near Great
Yarmouth.. The castle was built in the 3rd century as part of the Roman coastal
defences and has some of the imposing walls still standing. The distance from the car
park to the Castle is about ½ a mile along a lane on level ground.
We will continue on to Great Yarmouth for lunch and a visit to the ‘Time and Tide’
museum which has the history of the port.
On the way back we will be stopping at St Helen’s Church at Ranworth – known as
the ‘cathedral of the Broads’. The church has one of the finest rood screens in
England and beautiful paintings.
We will leave from outside Greyfriars at 8 a.m. and return to Colchester at about 6
p.m. Cost will be £25.00.per member.
