Made in East Anglia

East Anglia is a geographical area in the East of England. East Anglia (divided into the North Folk and the South Folk, hence the names of the counties) coincides almost exactly with the boundaries of modern Norfolk and Suffolk, with a little blurring into modern Cambridgeshire.

Lets take a look at both counties in turn.

Norfolk

Norfolk is possibly most famous for the man-made Norfolk Broads. This national park consists of 125 miles of navigable lock-free waterways set in beautiful countryside and with many charming and picturesque towns and villages.

Norfolk is low-lying, and a large part is drained by the Rivers Wensum, Yare, and Bure and their tributaries into the North Sea. The county has 659 medieval churches - the highest concentration of churches in the world.

Suffolk

Suffolk is an East Anglian county of historic origin in England. It has borders with Norfolk to the north, Cambridgeshire to the west and Essex to the south.

Suffolk is famous for several things such as classical music, its foodie ethos, the medieval town of Lavenham, and being the home of the famous singer/songwriter Ed Sheeran.
