Norwich in the 1960s: Ten Years That Altered a City
Changed by the 1950s, Norwich was to alter even more during the 1960s. Increased traffic would be met with widened roads and a new flyover, while London Street became pedestrians only. After centuries of trading there the cattle market would move out of the city centre. Bigger buildings changed its skyline and the city gained a university and a new library. THE BEATLES PLAYED HERE, SECRET CHEMICAL TESTS WERE CARRIED OUT THERE AND PLANS TO MODERNISE WERE EVERYWHERE. In this sequel to his hugely popular book Norwich in the 1950s, Pete Goodrum takes a fascinating look at the ten years in which the baby boomers came into their own. As the fifties faded away and sixties style arrived, this was the decade that altered the face of the city.

Norfolk Broads The Biography
Spread out under the vast Norfolk skies, the Broads have helped define the county. In a panoramic sweep of facts, anecdotes and historical research, Pete Goodrum tells their story. From the Roman occupation, when the peat excavations that would form them were first begun, through the dark days of the Middle Ages, to the innovations of the nineteenth century and the emergence of the area as an internationally loved holiday location, this is the complete picture of the Norfolk Broads. Long thought to be a natural phenomenon the Broads are now known to be manmade. And man has made much of them. An inspiration to writers and artists, a passion for conservationists and a recreational wonderland for holidaymakers, the Norfolk Broads are inextricably linked to the history and social development of the county. Covering the development of this beautiful and intriguing area up to the present day, Norfolk Broads: The Biography is a rewarding insight into the history of these magical waterways.

Norwich in the 1950s: Ten Years That Changed a City
Norwich in 1950 was a different place. Still scarred by war the city was coming to terms with itself. Children played in the rubble of bomb sites, and workers strove to build a prosperous peace on building sites. By the end of the decade the retail heart of the city would be reconstructed, new building programmes would be changing domestic life, and the manufacturing industries would be making world-class products with household names. Birthplace of Barclays, Aviva, Start-Rite and Colmans, the city was ready to embark on another chapter in its long history of commercial and cultural development. From post-war austerity to the threshold of the consumer society, Norwich embraced the 1950s as a decade of change.
