The notes probably date from one of Mackintosh's two tours of Norfolk, made in 1896 and 1897. Many of the locations noted (Dilham Hall, Honing Hall, Westwell Hall and Church, the Maid's Head at Sloley, the Jolly Farmers at Swanton Abbott) are in the vicinity of Worstead, which had a railway station and which Mackintosh visited in both years. All Saints Skeyton and Burgh Church are accessible by road between Swanton Abbott and Aylsham. The railway line from Aylsham gave access to Cawston and Reepham .and Salle was within walking distance from both. 'Balton' and 'Banton' do not appear to exist. Mackintosh was probably referring to Booton which is close to Reepham and has a notable and unusual 19th-century church. Blickling Hall, as Mackintosh noted, was accessible by trap from Aylsham. The page has been inaccurately numbered "3" in an unknown hand.
