Here's an aerial dronelapse tour of two counties in the UK's East England region, which is (for these purposes) considered part of the greater Midlands region.  Suffolk and East Essex sit to the northeast of London, south of Norfolk, in a large piece of land north of the Thames River which protrudes into the North Sea.  Suffolk is the northern of the two counties.  Together with Norfolk, they made up the historical Kingdom of East Anglia, which merged with Wessex to form the Kingdom of England.

Joshua Paul Gardner

A beautiful port on England's Norfolk Coast is the subject of this beautiful drone video by content creator and pilot Joshua Paul Gardner.  Wells-next-the-sea is now not quite appropriately named, as extensive silting which has occurred in the harbor means that the town is now a mile from the North Sea.  It is situated on the northern part of the great Norfolk coastline in the East Anglia (East of England) region.  This is the seventh of a multi-part series by this contributor on England's Norfolk County.

England's Norfolk coastline bulges into the North Sea, creating significant navigational challenges for ships in these perenially busy waters.  Since 1790, the Happisburgh Light House, which sits near the northeastern apex of the coast, has been critical to protecting ships in the area.  With a focal height of 41 meters (about 135 ft.), it's the oldest working lighthouse in the East Anglia.  In this drone video from Joshua Paul Gardner, you can see this famous landmark from a bird's eye perspective.

Mersea is one of the UK's larger tidal islands, as well as its easternmost.  It's located just off the coast of Essex, about an hour's drive east and north of London.  Once a seaside retreat for Britain's Roman overlords and later a hiding spot for pirates, the island was heavily fortified during the World Wars for fear of it being used as an invasion route.  Its population has grown considerably since then as it's become somewhat of a bedroom suburb to London.  You can check it out from above in this drone video by binesh.
