In a fascinating road trip along the Norfolk coast, Edward Couzens-Lake covers the ninety miles of the A149 from Kings Lynn to Great Yarmouth. It's a journey through historical and social events that have shaped the county and had truly international impact. From the Romans to today's royal family; from the birth of modern agriculture to the wrecking of ships on this deceptively benign coastline, this book explores the timeline of the towns and villages of North Norfolk. Each landmark along the way is accompanied by a brief but detailed description of its history, origins and use along with any other information about both it and this captivating piece of British coastline that you might have thought you knew well - at least until now! With 100 original colour photographs included, A149 Landmarks is not only an essential companion for those visiting Norfolk but a revelation to the Norfolk native; a thoroughly absorbing investigation of a fascinating thoroughfare.
