Birds Eye Views of Norfolk

Norfolk is a beautiful county  when viewed from ground level, but get up in the air and you discover a whole new Norfolk emerges. With its lovely coastline, sand spits and its undulating countryside, its hidden beauty shines out.  We are sure you will agree that Norfolk is most definitely photogenic!  Sometimes looking at the coastal shots, with the shallow water covering the very white sand underneath, the colours that are caught by the camera could be mistaken for those found on tropical shores.  Further inland, the outline of ancient buildings can be seen under the fields, lovely churches standing in isolated splendour and gorgeous country estate houses with their extensive gardens are available to admire.

Discover Norfolk by aerial pictures is a novel way to see the county. Just starting with the coast, Blakeney is renowned for its ever changing Spit.  The sands swirl around with each tide making the approach through them to the quay at Blakeney a bit tricky.  However, it is one of the seals favourite places and well worth a boat trip to see them at work, rest and play.....
 
 
The Burnhams consists of three villages, Burnham Ovary, Burnham Market and Burnham Thorpe which of course we all know as the birthplace of Nelson.....   
 

Happisburgh is famous for its lighthouse and its very large beautiful church.....  

Great Yarmouth sits on the point where the coast and the Norfolk Broads meet and gazes out over the North Sea towards Holland.  Lots to see and do in Great Yarmouth as well as great beaches to enjoy.....

 Rollesby, Ormesby and Filby Broads are part of The Trinity Broads. They cannot be accessed by boat and so have become a fishermans, sailors and canoeist paradise.....

Barton Broadsits to the northern end of the Norfolk Broads and is a success story for conservation, with bird and wildlife flourishing again due to the extensive conservation measures carried out over the last few years..... 

Hickling Broad is a keen favourite for sailors and the wildlife is prospering there too, again due to rigorous cleaning up and conservation measures.....
