... a bit Suffolk
|th 19 Mar|
Throwback Thursday: Twelve years ago today the road between Blaxhall and Tunstall was flooded, wouldn't be surprised if it still is.

Don't know if it was a dog walker but a car parked in Tunstall forest had a window smashed and a hatful of goodies stolen last weekend.

Been a while since a dog walker in Tunstall forest had their car broken into but it happened again Sunday ... mind you it doesn't sound like dog walkers.

Two shotguns burgled in Southwold, last night in Woodbridge several hundred pounds of cash burgled and this morning a ladies ring found in a toilet. In Melton and Tunstall bags of clothing for the charity Sense pinched last week.

This is Richard Taylor who designed and made the excellent Tunstall village sign ... the new(ish) Framsden sign is gratifyingly different too.

The rain was so heavy Saturday night it woke us up but we were still a bit surprised that the by road between Blaxhall and Tunstall was still flooded yesterday. A lady driver stopped to tell us the road was always flooding.

Villages signs are a Suffolk thing but most are designed with the moronic literalness of Pan's People so it's surprising and gratifying that Tunstall Parish Council went for this ... but then no doubt some villagers think it's an eyesore and a disgrace ... they usually do.

The Woodbridge Motor Cycle Club certainly keeps a steady stream of events coming. Today in Tunstall Forest it was motorcycle trials, that's the one where competitors attempt to ride up (and down) walls with out putting a foot down. Oddly enough we rather like the journeys between sections ... except when we slip over on the mud. The silence in the fading light when there are no riders about and just the orange arrows for company can be quite spooky . Wouldn't be at all surprised to meet Dorothy and Toto coming the other way.

When we drove past gate 25 in Tunstall Forest Saturday afternoon there was already a camper van village. When we got there yesterday afternoon it wasn't a motorbike enduro but a dead engine scramble. Dead engine means the race starts with the engines off and there's always some riders who have a job getting the bike started.

There's a motorbike enduro in Tunstall forest tomorrow morning, just follow the signs, the Woodbridge motorcycle club are good about that.

Motorcycle trials, as we discovered in Tunstall Forest today, no longer involve flat caps and rain coats but there are still people called Wilf involved. Compared with the mayhem of motocross and grass track the trials proceed in a comfortingly calm and considered manner with the occasional tiny burst of franticness, and the bikes have an elegant simplicity. A free day out where you couldn't get any closer to the action!

Follow the orange arrows saying Enduro (remembering to go straight on in Tunstall and not turn left for Snape) and there in Tunstall Forest is in fact a Hare Scramble. A lot of people there for this free entertainment on lovely sunny day. The races start with the motorbike engines off and kicking them into life is done with varying amounts of success leading to an impressively spluttering cavalry charge of a start.
