Description

Maritime Norfolk Part One is the first part of a lifetime’s enthusiam and research for the foremost of East Anglia’s writers on maritime topics. Robert Malster ventured to sea on a shrimper in the Wash, on a drifter out of Yarmouth, talked with longshore fishermen and beachmen, pored over local newspapers and documents in the Record Office and brings his decades of reasearch together in the 272 pages of this volume. This volume is the first of two parts; it deals with the Norfolk coast from Wisbech and Kings Lynn to Caister. Maritime Norfolk Part Two dealing specifically with Great Yarmouth, is also available.
