Norfolk is populated with many defensive structures that have played a role in stopping invasion.

From the remains of ancient castles through to Napoleonic Martello towers, forts and Second World War defences.

Some of those monuments have become hidden as the county modernises but a new book hopes to show Norfolk through the Great War and what has happened to those areas today.

Norfolk in the Great War From Old Photographs by Neil R. Storey gives an insight into the county with some photos ad posters that have never been seen before.

The book is available in store, in Kindle, Kobo and iBook formats.
