Paddy Apling

Runcton Holme, Norfolk


Yesterday, I explored some churches in west Norfolk in the company of Paddy Apling and his amazing camper van. Paddy is one of Norfolk's great characters, an expert on local history and on Norfolk in general, a former Tanks Regiment officer but also a left-wing activist and food scientist who writes fascinating articles on his own website.


Paddy is 84, but insisted on climbing to the top of Downham Market church tower with me. I accused him of showing off, and he smiled.
