Driving from much of near the coast to Norwich there was no petrol station until Long Stratton and that one on the wrong side.  Since May there's been a BP petrol station on the Scole A140/A143 roundabout near Diss.

Diss Emporium - antiques - vintage - collectablesDo you remember Alan and Henri landlords of the Framlingham Castle Inn around 2011?  Henri moonlighted as a belly dancer?  Stumbled across them from a roadside notice on the way to Norwich, since last year they've been the Diss Emporium.
