The Norfolk Coast: Living History on the Edge
The Norfolk coastal region occupies a narrow, curving strip of land, often barely a kilometre wide, facing the Wash in the west and the shallow waters of the North Sea in the north and east.

It is that broad, often tumultuous sweep of sea which defines life here on the very edge of the land.
