The lives of the fishing communities were hard, but their stories are rich in passion, love and romance. Bitter animosities between towns and fleets from other countries continue to this day.


Dorothy Stewart is a local author whose 2015 novel, When the Boats Come Home, told the story of the 1921 Great Yarmouth autumn fishing. She has written two further novels, The Mizpah Ring and the latest, Necklace of Lies, due out November 2017.
