Mike Page’s aerial photographs of East Anglia have delighted an eager public, and his first book A Broads-
Eye View became an instant bestseller followed by Norfolk Coast From the Air and Suffolk Coast from the
Air. His photographs are featured regularly in the Eastern Daily Press, further adding to the public appetite for
his superb aerial views. In Broads-Eye View 2 we are taken on an aerial journey along the major rivers of the
region each of which forms an integral part of that special area known as Broadland. The courses of the rivers
Bure,Ant,Thurne,Yare, Chet,Wensum andWaveney are each followed from the air providing the reader with
a unique viewpoint from which to discover and enjoy this wonderful landscape.
Important too are the changes revealed through the photographs particularly in the work undertaken in
recent years to alleviate flooding in vulnerable areas. Mike’s intimate knowledge of the region and his interest
in flying and photography make him particularly well qualified to create this fine collection of aerial pictures.
Gorleston-born Mike Page began his working life as a boat builder but in 1973 in partnership with his wife
Gillian began a garage business at Strumpshaw, east of Norwich. He's now semi-retired and his son Martin
runs the garage, which gives him more time to pursue his flying and photographic interests. He has a considerable
library of aerial and wildlife prints which he makes readily available. In addition he supplies newspapers
with newsworthy pictures and recently has produced aerial photographs for the Eastern Daily Press in a series
of supplements that have been very well received. His first major project was a number of videos and DVDs
of the East Anglian Coast. His first book A Broads-Eye View also produced in partnership with Pauline Young,
was a huge success, followed by their books Norfolk Coast from the Air and Suffolk Coast from the Air.
Pauline Young has lived in East Anglia for many years. She writes regularly for magazines and is a published
children's author. She first teamed up with Mike Page, whom she has known in a flying context for a long time,
when he began providing aerial pictures for her articles about the Norfolk Broads.
