The Book of the Burnhams begins with a look at the early history and moves on through the Middle Ages when East Anglia became rich from its wool and cloth weaving. Norfolk was the centre of the early Industrial Revolution and its huge churches testify to this. Great landowner pioneers such as Coke of Norfolk transformed the nature of farming and this in turn created a new social order in rural areas. The sea also played an important part in the life of the region, with Overy Staithe handling ships bringing coal in and taking out corn until the 19th century. The coming of the railways opened up the outside world to the county and, later, the rapid growth of game shooting created a thriving industry. Later still tourism and the growth in second home ownership brought new life to the communities. All these and many other aspects of the past are included, making The Book of the Burnhams a 'must read
