Martime Norfolk Parts I and II & Maritime Suffolk
Maritime Norfolk Part One is the first part of a lifetime's enthusiasm and research for the foremost of East Anglia's writers on maritime topics. Robert Malster ventured to sea on a shrimper in the Wash, on a drifter out of Yarmouth, talked with longshore fishermen and beachmen, pored over local newspapers and documents in the Record Office and brings his decades of reasearch together in the 272 pages of this volume. This first volume deals with the Norfolk coast from Wisbech and Kings Lynn to Caister.
Maritime Norfolk Part Two concentrates on Great Yarmouth, from the first establishment of a herring market on the gradually forming sandbank, through to the gas, oil and wind farm businesses it hosts today. On the journey through the centuries, we see the town's part in England's medieval fleets, the Royal Navy's North Sea Squadron operating from the port, the great days of the drifter fleets and the time of the trawlers fleets of Gorleston - and many more aspects of this part of Norfolk's maritime heritage.
Maritime Suffolk completes a series of titles on the maritime east coast exploring the history of fishing out of Lowestoft, the development of Ipswich as a port and towns like Felixstowe, a small costal community that became the vast container port it is today.
