Saving Norfolk’s Knobs

Snigger. While my sense of humour can justifiably be labelled immature – after all my desk at work used to be known as innuendo corner – the plight of the Norfolk knob is no laughing matter. And it is by no means alone. Along with rusks, huffers, fourses cake, kitchels and I’m sure many other […]
