See especially 'This Hollow Land: Aspects of Norfolk Folklore' by Peter Tolhurst.

The new and definitive work on the legends & lore of the county, by a reader of this website who has taken many of my references and thankfully then gone to the original sources in order to flesh out the mythology of the landscape, as well as adding much, much more in the way of traditional custom, ritual & song that you won't find here. Highly recommended.
