When Norfolk folk choose to venture outside of Nelson's County they are traditionally met with a very specific set of questions, comments and generalisations. Here's a look at some of the things you're bound to get tired of hearing when you leave the safety of our region.
1. 'Where's Norfolk?'
In EAST Anglia. The clue is in the name.
2. 'Have you met Alan Partridge?'
If I roll my eyes any harder they might just roll right out of my face.

3. 'It's very flat there.'
You've obviously never made it to the top of Beeston Bump.
