Maritime Norfolk Research Aspects

Maritime Norfolk Part One is a book which tells the story of the maritime history of the county of Norfolk from Wisbech and Cross Keys on the river Nene, to Kings Lynn and Hunstanton at the mouth of the Wash and then all the way round the coast to Winterton and Caister on Sea. Maritime Norfolk Part Two completes the story by covering the towns of Great Yarmouth and Gorleston, together with a chapter on steam boats on the river Yare to Norwich.

Some of the activity sheets linked from this page will be best used for school use, and some for higher level use - we hope you find them of interest. This page offers a menu for both of the books.
