“West Norfolk’s Coastal Treasures” has been written and produced by Norfolk County Council’s Norfolk Trails team in collaboration with Norfolk Museums Service, and features contributions from Achaeology East Anglia and The Nelson Society.

Oliver Bone, Curator at Norfolk Museums Service, said: “The rich tapestry of north-west Norfolk’s cultural history is brought to life in the book through 44 different stories. We would love for people to walk the routes themselves whilst finding out about the fascinating people and places along them.”
