Description

Over the centuries Norfolk’s coastline has changed constantly and dramatically, a process that continues today. Sea encroachments, floods and erosion have torn great chunks out of the cliffs, and cities, towns and villages have all disappeared beneath the waves. With a blend of engravings and photographs, fact, folklore and social history, and above all a keen sense of place, Neil R. Storey – a Norfolk man born and bred – offers a fascinating and evocative look back at what we have lost. The book also focuses on some of the settlements, such as Happisburgh, that are rapidly slipping into the sea – and will soon be lost forever.
