In Search of Secret Norfolk: A Souvenir and Guide to Norfolk
This is a lavishly illustrated companion to the heritage and beauty of Norfolk. Norfolk is one of the few remaining counties where time, if it hasn't stayed still, has marched at a slower pace than elsewhere. Strikingly beautiful, it is also one of the most popular counties for tourists from overseas and from all over the UK. With the help of his own stunning photographs, Robert Leader charts the heritage and history of Norfolk through its great Norman castles and abbeys, its guildhalls and medieval wool churches and the stately homes of the great land-owning families who helped to shape it all. He follows the course of Norfolk's rivers, and captures the charm of its fishing villages and genteel Edwardian towns as well as the drama of its wide-sky lonely beaches and fenlands.
Norfolk Coast from the Air
The public's fascination for aerial photographs was confirmed following the publication of Mike Page's first book "A Broads-Eye View". Going out of print and reprinting within a couple of months gave the book a high profile throughout East Anglia and further afield. In this new book, the author/photographer takes the reader on a trip along the Norfolk coastline, focusing-in on towns, villages, buildings and features of interest along the way.
Holkham
Built between 1734 and 1765, Holkham Hall - the Earl of Leicester's 25,000-acre estate in Norfolk - is a tribute to a time gone by. This great house full of exquisite works of art, one of England's premier tourist destinations, continues to be a thriving, self-sufficient community, providing visitors with a unique perspective on rural life as it was lived during the estate's conception. This colorful guide to the house and park explores for the first time the landscape and the architectural history of Holkham Hall, profiling the client for whom the mansion was conceived and built, detailing its fascinating construction process, and describing the magnificent historic interiors.
