Suffolk and East Essex

Sudbury Dr...

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.   



Little Escape, Episode 7: Wells-Next-to-the-Sea

Joshua Pau...

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.

Sights of East Anglia


Castle Acre Castle and Priory - and others


AirVuz contributor and pilot seb-depp brings us this excellent captioned aerial tour of some important spots in the UK's East Anglia region.  The first stop is Baconsthorpe Castle, an English Heritage manor in North Norfolk.  The next stop is North Elham Chapel, originally a Norman church which was converted into a fortified manor house in the 14th century.  Then it's on to Castle Acre, a well-preserved town in central Norfolk.  Other locations include Grime’s Graves, Thetford Priory, Warren Lodge, Weeting Castle, Denny Abbey, and more.  

Happisburgh Lighthouse

England's Norfolk coastline bulges into the North Sea, creating significant navigational challenges for ships in these perennially 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 East Anglia.  In this drone video from Joshua Paul Gardner, you can see this famous landmark from a bird's eye perspective.  

Castle Acre


North Norfolk Adventure, Episode 6: Castle Acre

Joshua Pau...

Joshua Paul Gardner created this amazing drone video of one of the most important cultural sites in Norfolk County in England's East Anglia region.  Castle Acre is a town in the interior of the county, away from the North Norfolk coast.  The two sites of interest are the castle and the priory, both of which were established by the Normans following their conquest of England in the 11th century.  The two landmarks are regarded as some of the most important surviving examples of Norman architecture.

It's called the Wymondham Abbey, and it's located in a town of the same name near the middle of the county.  Now the parish church, it was originally founded as a Benedictine abbey in the early 12th century.  A church was soon added to the monastery, which proved fortuitous four centuries later when monasteries were dissolved during the English Reformation.

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.

AirVuz contributor Dji mini 2 brings us this excellent drone video of the historic town of Stamford in the United Kingdom.  Located in Lincolnshire in the East of England region, it's one of the oldest continually-settled towns in the country.  Located on the banks of the River Welland, Stamford's namesake town on the outskirts of New York City was founded by pilgrims who largely emigrated from this area of England.  With much of its architecture dating to the 17th and 18th centuries, Stamford has appeared in numerous movies and TV shows.  

Felixstowe: The UK's Busiest Container Port


Mavic 3 Pro - Port of Felixstowe 24


Former DVOW Finalist benhawkinslive used a DJI Mavic Pro 3 to create this outstanding drone video of the port of Felixstowe in the UK.  Felixstowe is located in Suffolk, one of the counties of the East of England region northeast of London.  Situated on the North Sea, more or less due west of the Dutch city of Rotterdam, the port's two main terminals handle about 4 million twenty-foot equivalent units (TEU's) per year.  It's by far the largest container ports in the UK and amongst the ten busiest in all of Europe.

A Walk In The Woods | Thetford Forest | Mavic Air


The Thetford Forest is one of the legendary woods of England.  It's located in the East Anglia region, covering portions of Counties Norfolk and Suffolk.  The forest covers about 200 square km (around 75 square mi.) and is the largest pine forest in the UK.  The area was set aside for preservation after (the timber-devouring) World War I.  The forest has held a number of legendary concerts, and it was used as a filming location for the wildly popular Dad's Army TV series in the late 1960's and 1970's.

Rye House was a substantial manor in the countryside near the town of Rye in Hertfordshire, England.  The house dated to before the Hundred Years' War and had undergone numerous modifications.  In 1683, it became forever associated with a plot to murder King Charles II of England and his brother James.  Discovered before the plans could come to fruition, over a dozen of the plotters were executed and many more imprisoned.  You can check out this historic location from above in this drone video by oszibusz.

Contributor and pilot JohnLivesey created this beautiful drone video of the area around the town of North Fambridge in Essex, one of the counties of the United Kingdom's East of England region.  Much of the video was shot along the River Crouch, a short waterway which flows eastward into the North Sea and which forms the southern boundary of a landform known as the Dengie Peninsula.  The town of North Fambridge is very old, having earned mention in the 11th century Domesday Book survey as Fanbruge.

Essex in Winter

Multiple Drone Video of the Week Finalist benhawkinslive brings us this excellent aerial view of the English countryside in winter.  The video was filmed over Essex County, which is located in the East of England region, a bit to the northeast of London.  The current county is part of the larger ancient county, which roughly corresponded to the territory of the Kingdom of Essex, one of the seven kingdoms which comprised Anglo-Saxon England prior to their unification under Æthelstan in the 10th century AD. 

The Norfolk Broads


Norfolk Broads Visions Above Drone


The Norfolk Broads is an area of lakes and rivers in the East of England region of the United Kingdom.  Seen in this drone video by AirVuz contributor visionsabovemedia, the Broads (which also extend into neighboring County Suffolk) consist of seven (7) rivers and over 60 "broads" or lakes, most of which are extremely shallow.  Originally thought to be naturally occurring, in the 1960's it was discovered that the Broads were actually formed by deliberate flooding of peat excavations during the Medieval period.

Contributor Joshua Paul Gardner put together this amazing compilation of drone video footage of fireworks displays across England's County Norfolk.  The fireworks are integral to the Guy Fawkes Night celebration which occurs on November 5th each year.  The holiday commemorates the arrest of Guy Fawkes in 1605 in connection with the Gunpowder Plot, a foiled attempt to blow up the House of Lords with explosives.  The drone filming was undertaken in collaboration with the event organizers.

The Cliffs of Hunstanton, Norfolk


The cliffs at Old Hunstanton, Norfolk, UK


Hunstanton is a town in County Norfolk of eastern England.  It sits on the eastern side of a small North Sea inlet known as the Wash, facing east (unusually for the UK's east coast).  The town is located about 165 km (around 100 km) northeast of London, and a bit less than half as far to the northwest of the city of Norwich.  The town is perhaps best known for its coastal cliffs, which are part of the Hunstanton Formation.  Seen in this drone video, the formation is distuinguished by its reddish limestone layer topped by a white chalk layer.
