It is from the air that the full majesty of the Norfolk countryside unfolds, and in this book acclaimed aerial photographer Martin Bowman takes us on a series of airborne journeys across his native county from the city of Norwich itself with its wonderful castle and cathedral, Elm Hill and the meandering River Wensum to the outlying towns and villages nestling in the furthest corners of Nelson's County. Taken from aircraft as varied as a Piper PA 28 and the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight's Lancaster bomber, and even scheduled airliners, these photographs cover Norfolk from the wild northern tip of the county including Holkham Bay and Hunstanton, travelling along the coast over the holiday havens of Great Yarmouth, Sheringham and Cromer to the world-famous Norfolk Broads and then inland to Norwich and stately homes such as Holkham Hall and Sandringham. This is a book that will delight anyone with an interest in Norfolk and its landscape.
