9781841149745: Norfolk Coast from the Air 2

The superb aerial photographs of Mike Page have
generated a veritable library of books devoted to
Norfolk and Suffolk, each new volume being eagerly
snapped up by his increasing numbers of avid followers.
Here, following on the success of Norfolk Coast from the
Air comes a completely new set of images covering the
coast from Hopton on the Suffolk border around the
coast to TheWash.
In Norfolk Coast from the Air 2 attention is paid to the
smaller villages and to the effects of erosion that
change this coastline from year to year. The importance
of aerial photography in highlighting the perils
faced as a result of the encroaching sea is vividly
displayed in these fascinating images, with comparisons
made between those areas which have sea defenses
and those which do not.Also included are coastal
improvements such as the new outer harbour at Great
Yarmouth, the reefs at Sea Palling, and the defenses at
Horsey.The detail in these photographs also provide a
fascinating overview of this history of the coast from
the Roman settlement at Caister through to the
SecondWorldWar radar installations at Trimingham.
Along with the changes that have taken place, we are
also reminded of things that have remained much the
same.The importance of the holiday industry to this
part of Norfolk is exemplified through the holiday
parks, the magnificent beaches and the areas devoted
to the protection of wildlife.These days such things
provides the means for thousands to enjoy leisure
pursuits including watersports of all kinds, birdwatching,
or simply walking the coastal footpaths.
As a memento for visitors to these shores, or as
reminder to locals of what is best about their county,
this new book will prove to be a real treasure.
