Volume notes


Burnham Thorpe is a small village and civil parish on the River Burn and near the coast of Norfolk, England. It is famous for being the birthplace of Vice Admiral Horatio Nelson, victor at the Battle of Trafalgar and one of Britain's greatest heroes. The area is a tourist destination with many visitors making the effort to visit the village, and the pub. There is no monument in the village to Nelson and the belief is that the village and the pub are the landmarks for this.
