The following day, 11th August, Sue and Ferg. led us on a walk at Hockham Forest. Much of this followed the course of the old Thetford to Swaffham Railway, and is known as the Great Eastern Pingo Trail It is a most enjoyable routes through varied scenery but with no cuttings. Later on we encountered our first pingos, although we weren't attacked. In fact they are a geological feature - not common in Britain - and are ponds formed by the action of ice.
