Norfolk's coastline has changed much more than
many other stretches over the years as the force of nature and coastal
erosion have taken their toll.
But its natural beauty is still there for all of
us to see and now it's been captured on
film from the air by an amateur pilot.
Seething Airfield, near Brooke, has been Mike Page's
second home for more than 40 years.
When he commutes, it's usually a thousand feet
above sea level.
Mike has been taking still photographs of Norfolk's
cliffs and beaches for 10 years. He has now branched out into video.
So far he's made two. He has flown over and filmed
the Norfolk coast from Hopton to Hunstanton.
Mike fixes the camera into his plane for another day's filming.
The equipment is simple, but the results are remarkable.
Using a small digital video camera, mounted on
a bracket by the aeroplane's window, Mike flew along the coastline
for 10 hours, from 700 to 4,000 feet above sea level.
From the air, you can clearly see the cliff erosion
at Happisburgh and the wide expanses of sandy beach at Holkham and
The majestic spit at Blakeney stretches for miles
into the Wash.
It's cost him a small fortune, but all the cash
raised from sales of the videos, called East Anglia From The Air,
goes to charity.
The first film sold more than 3,000 copies and
fetched £10,000 for the RNLI.
Mike hopes his latest release will help to support
the East Anglian Air Ambulance.
Next year there should be a third instalment, as
Mike takes off in his Cessna 150 and heads south to Suffolk.
