Bill in conversation with Captain Mainwaring, sitting by the river at Thetford where much of Dad's Army was filmed.
V1 was taken with my 50mm f1.8 lens, V2 with my standard lens. I would rate them both equally if it wasn't for the more distracting background in V2.
We liked Thetford. A number of places in Norfolk play the WW2 Experience card for all its worth. Sheringham had a classy coffee shop absurdly draped in camouflage netting, and several very unconvincing mock-ups of bits of aircraft sticking out of buildings. We were expecting the same in Thetford, given its claim to fame, but the town capitalises on it much more politely. There's an excellent (free entry) museum devoted to the series, there's Jack Jones Butcher Shop (pity about the plastic sign...), but that's about it. Oh yes, and the sculpture of Arthur Lowe/Capt. M, seated on a bench, looking out over the river.
Thanks for looking,
Edit: I realise that this may be a bit puzzling for non-UK members - explanation: here
