The fifth of Cv's English County Guides Norfolk is characterized by the breadth and variation of its countryside, known for its arched skies and expansive landscape. In a series of journeys that crisscrossed the county, author Nicholas James recorded over 100 villages and market towns, ranging from Cromer to Hunstanton on the "Norfolk Riviera" to the King's Lynn by "The Wash". He also visited Wroxham and Hoveton, center of the Broads, and many lesser known hamlets nestling deep in this fascinating and historic part of East England. Further information is provided by local specialists: Malcolm Carter gives the story of Norwich Cathedral; and Joy, the official guide to Nelson's birthplace at Burnham Thorpe.

The author drives around the county in three separate weekends and shares with the reader all sorts of information. You can find out about traffic, access to public transportation, shops, museums, lodging, some fascinating architectural histories, styles of residences, differing lifestyles of various villages and towns. I found it a lot of fun to listen while looking at a map of the county.
