An Historic Tour of Norfolk – 5 Week Course

An Historic Tour of Norfolk Course

Wednesday 21st September 2pm – 4pm for 5 weeks (finishes 19/10/22)

Tutor: Stephen Poulter

Fee: £38.00

From gentlewoman Celia Fiennes travel diary in the late 17th century, via Daniel Defoe’s best-selling book Tours Through the Whole Island of Great Britain (1720s), to the popular 1930s King’s England Guides of Arthur Mee this course charts nearly 400 years of change in the landscape and settlements of this county. Using the original observations and recommendations of travellers to East Anglia in the past combined with a wealth of period paintings, antiquarian engravings, vintage postcards and modern photographs this will be a fascinating and unusual perspective on the history of our historic shire.
