The Five Areas of Norfolk
Norfolk is a mostly rural county in East Anglia and is a popular tourist and holiday destination. It is home to the lakes and rivers of the Norfolk Broads. The five distinct areas of Norfolk are Fenland, Broadland, Breckland, the coastal marshes and central Norfolk.
Filby is a pretty village on the shores of Filby Broad which is one of the unique clear Trinity Broads in Norfolk. This historic and charming rural village can trace its roots back to the Viking days and is now part of an area designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest and has won the village category of the RHS Britain in Bloom competition several times.
The small rural village of Mautby is just 4 miles from Caister-on-Sea and lies on the north bank of the River Bure on the Norfolk Broads. St Peter and St Paul is Mautby's small church with a thatched roof, a 15th century font, a striking and noteworty 20th century stained glass window, and an unusual round tower that may have been used as a look-out during the English Civil War.
