Norfolk - From How It Was to How It Is Now

Introduction

Looking at Norfolk - from then to now, one cannot help but notice the rich historical legacy possessed by the land. Settled before the rise of the Roman empire, the area has become one of the most important counties in England. Local attractions continue to attract visitors from around the world.

About Norfolk

Norfolk, England has some of the best weather in the United Kingdom (UK). The dry, sunny climate has made the area a popular holiday locale for UK residents. Historians found evidence of humans in the Norfolk area dating back to 1st century Before Common Era (BCE). Residents known as the Iceni attempted to fight off invading Roman troops. The area became agricultural after a second Roman invasion in 60 Anno Domini (AD). Construction started at this time on local roads and ports.

Prime location on England’s Eastern coastline left Norfolk residents vulnerable to invasions. Landmarks bear the name of Angles, Saxons and Vikings that previously conquered the area. Despite continual upheaval, the area continued to thrive due to agriculture and woolen products. Everything came to a screeching halt after one-third of the population was wiped out over the course of 200 years, courtesy of the Black Death and the plague. Norfolk continued in a slow state of decline for the next 300 years.

New Life

New airfields built during World War I rejuvenated Norfolk. Members of the Royal Air Force and United States Air Force flew out of expanded airfields during World War II. Agriculture found a second life during this period that remains strong today. As of 1998 the area accounted for 1.5 percent of England’s total economy. In 2000, local employment rates were lower than numbers reported throughout England and the UK.

Tourism

Great Yarmouth and Cromer are just a handful of the lush beaches where people gather for sun. A glimpse of the royal summer residence at Sandringham is a welcome treat. For different waterfront views, The Broads are a series of waterways running through the area. Travelers use small yachts for the 117 square mile journey that encompasses 7 rivers and 63 lakes. Historical sites along the way include St. Benet’s Abbey, the only monastery not shuttered by Henry VIII during the mid-1500s and the market town of Stalham.

Additional historical sites are located in Norwich, the administrative center of Norfolk. The area has retained a number of historical buildings and ancient walls. Norman Cathedral is considered one of the most impressive in England. Norwich castle’s 12th century keep stands majestically above the city.

Places like Great Yarmouth Pleasure Beach and Banham Zoo make for a perfect family day. Sea Life Centre in Great Yarmouth features a tropical shark display. BeWILDerwood was the inspiration for a well-known children’s book.

With an intoxicating blend of historic attractions and beachfront leisure, Norfolk has risen from the ashes to become a crowning European jewel. Local attractions cater to a wealth of interests that keep visitors coming back for yet more
Norfolk holidays.
