17:15 Last stop of the day. Reasonably busy. Forgot to note all the beers. Probably related to the previous seven pints.

20:00 My journey from Billericay took 3 and a half hours because of signal failures and cancellations, and my problems were further exacerbated by a train hitting a stag at Thetford. My wife told me to sit in the pub whilst she drove to Norwich to collect me. The Angler was busy but the assistant manageress found time to tell me about her recent trip to Mons and Brussels

18:15 Last stop of the day and the first busy pub. I was surprised by how quiet the pubs were today considering the amount of City of Ale publicity there has been.

15:10 An hour's break at Norwich gave us the opportunity for a drink here. Quiet at first but soon filled up with people returning from the play-off in Ipswich.
