Radical Norfolk part 2.

Statue of Thomas Paine in Thetford, originally uploaded by historymonkey.

Statue of Tom Paine in his birthplace of Thetford, Norfolk. As you can see, Tom continues to be admired by the common man. (Also, the copy of The Rights of Man that he is holding appears to be upside-down).

Still, at least we found him. I spent a fruitless half an hour looking for the Oak of Reformation in Wymondham. As my wife pointed out, there are quite a lot of oak trees around and maybe it would have been an idea to get directions.
