Norfolk Places Behind the Faces (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Norfolk has many places of interest connected with its diverse and sometimes bloody past. This book explores locations around the county linked with historical figures and major events. Houses, monuments and statues are associated with the likes of Lord Nelson, Nurse Edith Cavell, Anna Sewell, Howard Carter, Pocahontas, Julian of Norwich and many others. And there are many places connected with major historical incidents such as the Norfolk Rising, the Peasants' Revolt and Boudicca's stand against the Romans. Norfolk locations used in films and television programmes are also included, not least The Eagle Has Landed and Dad's Army. Royalty has long been associated with Norfolk, including Anne Boleyn and Lady Diana as well as the royal residence at Sandringham. Norfolk has also inspired famous works of literature including The Hound of the Baskervilles, Black Beauty and the Swallows and Amazons series and many major rock acts played in small venues around the county before becoming famous.

Norfolk Faces Behind the Places is an entertaining survey of places of interest associated with Norfolk historical characters, events, and film and television locations. It will appeal to all those who live in Norfolk or know it well.
