This Week in Pictures


Saturday, June 24, 2017

Air, land and sea - well, river, to be exact - come together today, with feedback from recent columns. First, a virtual flight to Buckinghamshire, home of a daughter of Great Yarmouth airfield pioneer “Wilbur” Wright.

Great Yarmouth is to feature in a television programme tonight on BBC One.


Work is due to re-start on building a JD Wetherspoon pub in Gorleston tomorrow after construction was halted when workmen discovered a crypt on the site.

It was a train station that served the town of Gorleston for nearly 70 years as passengers and freight travelled between Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft.


This Sunday marks the 75th anniversary of the fire-bombing of St Nicholas Church in Great Yarmouth, which resulted in its virtual destruction.
