Norfolk is a large flat barren county in the East of England (or East Anglia as the area is also known hence the regiment of that name). Those considering visiting Norfolk should not bother. The single good thing about Norfolk is that it is the home county of Nelson, who of course beat the Frogs in the days when they put up a fight before the white flag was raised.

Me? I'm a fan of the county - and so is Auntie Betty, 'cause she's got (another) big house there, so it can't be that bad.
