NCA Profile: 78 Central North Norfolk (NE526)

An updated version of this profile is online at This pdf is retained for historical and completeness purposes.

The gently undulating rural landscape of the Central North Norfolk National Character Area (NCA) stretches from the slightly flatter, more open land of Mid Norfolk NCA, to the prominent glacial landform of the Cromer Ridge and the dynamic exposed coastline of coastal cliffs, where large storm events dramatically shape its character. This is ancient countryside with a long-settled agricultural character, where arable land is enclosed by winding lanes and hedgerows, interspersed with woodland and remnant heath and dissected by lush pastoral river valleys. A patchwork of cultivated land, numerous church spires, distant wooded horizons and big skies dominates the landscape.
