This plan covers the North Norfolk coast and features some of the most distinctive salt-marshes, inter-tidal flats, dunes, shingle and grazing marshes in Europe. Near Wells-next-the-Sea is Holkham Park with its triumphal arch indicated along the southern approach. This was the path visitors from London and Newmarket would have taken to Wells. At the highest point of the park, aligned with the arch, is the obelisk of Holkham Park Mansion and Kent's North Lodges.
