Norfolk (County) Local Customs

  • Bygones with Dick Joice...

    If you happen to be any sort of Norfolk-phile, the name of Dick Joice is essential study to better sppreciate this most rural of counties...Dick Joice became famous to many East Anglians, presenting About Anglia, the Independent Broadcasting Authority's local news programme which went out @ 18:00 every weekday, (& still does to this day...)Dick...

  • HMS Norfolk

    (c78) - County-class Heavy Cruiser HMS Norfolk was a County-class heavy cruiser of the Royal Navy and was the third of five ships to carry that name; she was named, after the Duke of Norfolk or the county of Norfolk and her motto was Serviens servo ("serving, I preserve"). Along with her sister ship Dorsetshire, she was part of a planned four-ship...

  • The Lord Nelson

    The lord nelson has a local song that sometimes get sung.Norfolk and good. yes it left a question mark with us too, until you say it quickly?Raised many a laugh in the pub.Also the guy who sang has it has his boat named the same.

  • Shellfish Shops and Stalls

    Several to choose between in each town – but near enough all selling the same things, and at very similar prices.A typical British seaside tradition!

  • Salvation Army

    Here in the UK we are so used to seeing The Salvation Army band performing especially around Christmas, and volunteers collecting money for the needy on street corners in our towns, that we tend to take their presence for granted. This band seemed really dedicated and we took a few minutes out to actually stop and listen, they were really quite...

  • Cromer Crabs!

    Dressed or undressed – the choice is yours!In case you are wondering what this has to do with crabs, the ones in my picture are ‘dressed’ – all the hard work has been done for you by someone who knows how to do it! Just unwrap, sprinkle with salt and vinegar and enjoy!Varying in price by size, a mid range one will cost around 4.40 Euros.

  • Architecture

    I don't know what this style of architecture is called, but it is to be found all over Norfolk in different variation. Mostly like this, with small stones set in mortar, edged with red brick. It is very distinctive.

  • Pheasants

    Around our way (Bristol), we hardly ever see pheasants in the fields, whereas in Norfolk they were a common sight. At first I got very excited about seeing them, poitning them out to my husband as we were driving along. By the 150th sighting, I didn't even bother to mention it!

  • Sense of humour

    The people of Norfolk have obviously got a gerat sense of humour - or very small cars. We spotted these two cones with the sign - Please do not park between the cones - in a National Trust car park. Needless to say we didn't manage to fit the car into that small space - not even a woman could park her car that well!
