Prudence visits the world snail racing championship...

Yes, you read correctly there is a World Snail Racing Championship that takes place in the village of Congham every year. We decided to take a quick detour in Prudence who is one of the 'Snail Trail' camper vans - it was meant to be! Of course being experts ourselves in the fine art of snail racing we just had to enter...


Number 39 {found in a hurry under a log at the side of the cricket pitch}, a rather fine brown lipped snail, not as big as his rivals but just as speedy and came a respectable 3rd in his heat. Rain stopped play for us as we got back into Prudence and onto the North Norfolk coast!

I love "englishness" and the customs, traditions and peculiarities of our island, typified by snail racing, cheese rolling and well dressing, find out about more events on the excellent Common Ground website.
