More About This Title A149 Landmarks


It's a journey through historical and social events that have shaped a county and made a significant impact locally, nationally and, in some instances, internationally. From the end of the last Ice Age to today's Royal Family; from the birth of modern agriculture to the safety and protection of the ships that have sailed this seemingly benign stretch of coast for over a millennia, this book explores some of the towns, villages and landmarks, big, small, ancient and modern that feature on one of England’s most picturesque and iconic highways, the A149, the famous ‘coast road’ that winds a sinuous route along the North Norfolk coast. Each of these landmarks is accompanied by a short yet concise description of its origins, history and significance; an invitation to seek them out for yourself and, in doing so, find out a little bit more about their place in Norfolk’s rich history. With over 75 colour photographs included, A149 Landmarks is an essential companion for those visiting and exploring Norfolk, a thoroughly absorbing investigation of a fascinating thoroughfare.
