In this companion to his masterly up-date on Norwich and North-East Norfolk, Bill Wilson does not disappoint. Like its sister volume, the sheer comprehensiveness, accuracy and depth of the work leave one almost breathless. This aside, the eloquent and consise writing, interwoven with the occasional and beautifully crafted rye comment are what makes the book so readable, The introduction alone makes it an essential purchase for those with a love of the county, its buildings and just damn good writing. It will remain both my bedside read and my essential guide to Norfolk for many years to come.
