|Unlikely as it might seem, the poppy-strewn county of Norfolk, with its ruined abbeys, breeze-blown windmills, flint cottages and patchwork fields, was once one of Britain’s most heavily populated regions.
That was in the market-led Middle Ages when many of East Anglia’s inhabitants earned their wages through the burgeoning trade in wool, an industry sparked by the skills of Flemish émigrés.
Today, however, this fertile, low-lying county that juts out into the North Sea like the head of a tonsured monk, is concerned far more with tourism than clothing.
It certainly possesses some of East Anglia’s finest landscapes and within its boundaries lie the misty Fens, beautiful Breckland and the glorious waterways and rare wildlife of the stunning Norfolk Broads.
