Scenic Norfolk loves hearing what it is about Norfolk that you love. Here's what some of you have had to say so far:
"I love Norfolk for so many reasons. When I first moved here from London I soon became a single parent. Norfolk has given both my son and I so many opportunities that perhaps may not have been provided for in London. I simply adore the rural villages dotted throughout our North Norfolk Coastline. I love the expanse, wilderness, big skies, freedom and all the wonderful characters that make Norfolk such a great place to live in. I love the many redundant churches, old ruins, castles, museums, fishing villages, the slower pace of life, the ability to breathe non-toxic fumes, etc. Thank you Norfolk for giving me so much." By Sandy Watson, from Aldborough, Norfolk
"Norfolk is a beautiful County offering a lifestyle that most people dream about. The Norfolk Coastline stretches for miles offering sandy beaches and scenic views. You can enjoy the coast and countryside as well as fun and culture in the City of Norwich. Where else would you find paradise? That is why we moved to Norfolk." By Anna Ovenden, from Knapton, Norfolk
"I travelled from Australia to England especially to see Norfolk, the home of my ancestors. Driving along country lanes to Weston Longville, I felt an overwhelming feeling of being home. All Saints Church was the same as the old photos from my Gran's book. The cousins I stayed with looked like the Aussie relations. The countryside was peaceful and inviting, timeless. I spoke to gravestones, drank stout and ate fish and chips. I had never felt this sense of belonging so strongly in Aus which I also love." By Jenny Nebe, from Australia.
"We moved to Snettisham almost a year ago. After a childhood having the norfolk coast 'inflicted' on me it was a move we made out of necessity rather than intent, but it was a real eye opener! Now I'm in my mid thirties I have different priorities. I am constantly entranced by the changing skies, the depth of history and the beautiful landscape. I've come to appreciate the simple things in life and material pursuits have become less important. I love being able to cycle without fear, walk through woods, meadows and beaches in less than two miles, and simply potter. Due to unforeseen circumstances I am working and living back in Cambridge during the week. I now realise how little I enjoy the high stress lifestyle and 'keeping up with the joneses' attitude down here and am dedicating all my spare time to securing an - admittedly rare - job back where I belong. Each friday as I cross the Hardwick roundabout I can breathe again. In Snettisham I finally feel I have come home :-)" By Liz Maxim, from Snettisham, Norfolk
