James has celebrated Norfolk Day by visiting Associated British Ports (ABP) Port of King's Lynn in recognition of the town's strong trading links which remain an important part of the economy today.
The Port's rich heritage dates from medieval times when it was one of the country’s main ports. James was encouraged to hear how busy the port is with Imports of timber from Scandinavia having doubled this year. That is due to demand from the construction industry as well as the DIY market. The increase in trading volumes is seeing ABP investing in new storage facilities and other improvements at the port as well as the creation of new jobs.
Now in its fourth year, Norfolk Day has become a highlight of the county's calendar, and has become a chance to celebrate everything that's wonderful and unique about Nelson's county.
From a stunning coastline with endless skies to the magical countryside, the Broads, and some of the world's quirkiest attractions, Norfolk is a one-of-a-kind place to live in and explore.
