Norfolk local history and politics

'All England may be carved out of Norfolk. Here are fens and heaths, and light and deep, and sand and clay-ground, and meadows and pasture, and arable and woody ... so grateful is this shire with the variety thereof'. — Thomas Fuller, The History of the Worthies of England. 1672. [per: R.W.Ketton-Cremer, Norfolk in the Civil War. 1969]

I am particularly interested in the region of Norfolk (and north-west Suffolk) known as the Breckland, which now has a local web-site.
Also see Thetford Forest [Forestry Commission] and Wayland [Wayland Partnership]

Most of the village information linked below is derived from transcription of directory entries. These are made by courtesy of Kelly's Directories (a part of Reed Business Information) to whom thanks for their permission are accorded.
Information is also posted on a regular basis to the Norfolk-L mailing list
