EDP Norfolk - - NORFOLK BOOKS -

All but two of Nor­folk’s rivers (the Nene and the Great Ouse) start and fin­ish in the county.

Nor­folk has rivers called Ant, Babin­g­ley, Gad­der, Hun and Mer­maid.

The River Great Ouse, which runs into the sea in King’s Lynn is the longest of sev­eral Ouses in Bri­tain. The name means wa­ter in Celtic.

When St Felix ar­rived in West Nor­folk in 630AD, by boat from the sea and up the river Babin­g­ley, he was saved from drown­ing by beavers and he made one of them a bishop.

Nor­folk is an is­land, bor­dered by sea and rivers.
