Framlingham Infirmary OS map 1947At the top of Fore Street Framlingham on the right there's an unmade road marked on maps as Infirmary Lane, after winding for a bit it ends at what might be has been a farmhouse and continues as a footpath.  This 1947 OS map sort of marks the building as Infirmary (Infectious Diseases).  Search Infirmary in the Convalescent Home by CF DowsingFramlingham Archive and you get a 1930 pic of the East Anglians camped near the Infirmary.  CF Dowsing was Framlingham's other photographer with a studio in Double Street but we find it unlikely this Hospital Convalescence Home was at the end of Infirmary Lane.

Detectorists Christmas SpecialChristmas tv included a Norwegian Bob and Paul festive special, Ted the dog appearing was so heavily signposted it was hardly a surprise.  Considerably more subtle in Detectorists was Professor Alice Roberts' slightly out of focus and unremarked appearance (around 1:04:24) on the steps of the British Museum.  Already nostalgic to see the now gone Framlingham St Michael's Rooms.
