Facts about Norfolk
· The system of waterways that form the Norfolk Broads are all thanks to medieval peat diggers. The pits left behind from extensive digging gradually flooded to become the network of wetlands and National Park that are so popular with boaters today.
· Norfolk has 120 round tower churches, more than three times the number than any other county. Built in the 100 years after 1050, it is thought round towers were built for cultural reasons, at a time when Norfolk had strong trading links with the Baltic and the North Sea communities.
· The Chalk Reef, off Cromer and Sheringham, is the world’s longest chalk reef, at over 20 miles, and is more than 100,000 million years old, created in the Mesozoic Era when dinosaurs roamed. It’s part of the same chalk stream as the White Cliffs of Dover, providing feeding grounds for crabs and lobsters, which is why Cromer crabs are so tasty.
· Blakeney Point is home to the largest seal colony in England with the arrival of 2500 pups in recent winters. The colony is made up of Common and Grey seals. Common seals have their young between June and August, and the Greys between November and January. They are fed on their mother’s milk for three weeks before heading into the sea for the first time.
