Books by Pete Goodrum

  • Historic England: Norfolk

    Pete Goodrum

    Product Code: CBRHT
    Paperback
    This illustrated history portrays one of England's finest counties. It provides a nostalgic look at Norfolk's past and highlights the special character of some of its most important historic sites. The photographs are taken from the Historic England Archive, a unique collection of over 12 million photographs, drawings, plans and documents covering England's archaeology, architecture, social and local history. Pictures date from the earliest days of photography to the present and cover subjects from Bronze Age burials and medieval churches to cinemas and seaside resorts. The county of Norfolk has been an important region in England since the Middle Ages. The county was one of the most heavily populated areas in mediaeval England, growing in prosperity through the wool trade. Norfolk's major city Norwich became one of the leading cities in the country and although the area did not grow as heavily during Industrial Revolution as other parts of the country Norwich today retains its position as a major commercial, industrial and cultural centre for East Anglia. Norfolk is still a largely rural county and is renowned today for its historical towns and villages, its magnificent heritage of historic buildings including large country houses and the royal residence at Sandringham, its long coastline with popular seaside resorts and atmospheric marshlands and the unspoilt waterways of the Broads.

  • 50 Gems of Norfolk

    Pete Goodrum

    Product Code: BBBQA
    Paperback
    Famous for its wide skies, Norfolk is a county with a wide spread of people and places. From the bustling heart of historic Norwich to the tranquility of the north coast, this is a place of contrasts. Tiny villages, the agricultural landscape and the world famous Norfolk Broads are all parts of the panorama that is Norfolk. This is a book that will take you from the fun of the fair at Great Yarmouth to sequestered spots of historic interest. Boats and beaches, piers and pubs, stately houses and steam railways - they're all here in a lovingly painted picture of Norfolk today. '50 Norfolk Gems' explores some of the places that make the county special. Taking in some well known locations, as well as exploring some quieter byways, this is a look at places to see and things do in this special place. Steeped in a history that embraces both its agricultural heritage and seafaring tradition, Norfolk proudly acknowledges that it likes to 'do different'. Within these pages you'll find some of the reasons why that's true.

  • Norwich in the 1970s

    Pete Goodrum

    Product Code: AQIXG
    Paperback
    For some the 1970s meant punk rock and political unrest. For others it was a time of ABBA and affluence. The decade's dual identity was as striking in Norwich as it was nationally. While once-familiar streets were demolished, new buildings sprang up. Different brand names appeared in the city centre and with them came a new era of shopping and eating out. For those who remember the steak houses and night clubs, the football and the fashions of the 1970s, this book is a fascinating flash back to a different Norwich. Following his incredibly popular Norwich in the 1950s and Norwich in the 1960s Pete Goodrum's look at the 1970s shines a light on another decade in the city's history. From the 'old' Odeon to the Garlands fire; from Bonds to the 'Berni' this is how we lived in Norwich, in the 1970s.
