Encompassing the counties of Hertfordshire, Essex, Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Suffolk and Norfolk, this illustrated guide explores that area of eastern England which spreads from the Thames to the Wash. It is a region of dramatic scenery, from the sweeping coastline where the struggle against the devouring North Sea is all too visible, to the low-lying waterlands and Fens where the horizon is punctuated by ancient spires and towers. The emphasis is on buildings as history, and the full range of the region's archaeological and architectural heritage is explored. From the romance of Framlingham Castle to the ship burial at Sutton Hoo, and from the Electric Palace Cinema in Harwich to the rarefied atmosphere of Cambridge, this guide the heritage of eastern England.
