'Norfolk is a low-lying county in East Anglia, and has a large coastline stretching from The Wash to the Suffolk border. Norwich is the largest settlement, and there are many other beautiful towns, such as Kings Lynn on the outfall of the Great Ouse. Although low-lying, there are some superb walks within the county, and the Peddar's Way and North Norfolk Coast Path national trail runs entirely in the county. The Broads National Park also lies partly with Norfolk, although part is shared with the neighbouring county of Suffolk.'
