Bob of Lynn, with Chris Boxall

BBC Radio Norfolk’s Chris Boxall specialises in military history and the early Georgian period, concentrating on Sir Robert Walpole.

“To the nation he was Sir Robert Walpole, Britain’s first Prime Minister, but, to the people of Lynn he was just their ‘Bob of Lynn’.” This nickname struck a chord with Chris, it’s the title of the book that he wrote about Walpole’s life.

“Walpole was a great politician, statesman and orator, and rogue! He was vain, ambitious and corrupt. Not a bad job description for Britain’s first Prime Minister!”
