About East of England (East Anglia)

The East of England (East Anglia) contains two distinct landscapes. One is of open flat fens crisscrossed by waterways and meres, dotted with old wind mills, the other is rich with gentle hills and villages of stone and flint cottages. The coastline is buffeted by the North Sea to form long soft beaches and salt marshes that support a plethora of native and migrating birds. Much of this coastline is slowly being eroded by the elements
