The name [Horning] means “the folk who live on the high ground between the rivers”.

In 1020 A.D. the manor was given by King Canute to the Abbey of St. Benet at Hulme, and the Bishop of Norwich as Abbot of St. Benets is still Lord of the Manor.

The Parish extends along the north bank of the river Bure to the Thurne Mouth and includes the ruins of the abbey and St. James hospital also the 13th. century church of St. Benedict.

    Ah, a bench to rest a while.

  2. For a second, I thought perhaps you had visited the Mississippi river and took a ride on an old-school steamboat paddle-style riverboat without me, but I see it’s its more modern UK sister :)

    Did you take a ride?
