[Talk-gb-midanglia] King's Lynn mapping party?

I'd like to be able to help at some point, though Kings Lynn is slightly
distant for me (I'm in north Essex), and unfortunately June is out (I'm a
teacher, and June = reports).
I'd be especially keen to help with Sudbury; it's very local to me, and I've
been chipping away with odd little bits from time to time, as I pass
through. I just haven't had the time to tackle the whole town head-on. It is
looking very sad though, and desperately needs doing. It really needs
tackling in conjunction with Great Cornard, which I believe more than
doubles the population. However, they are pretty seamless, and doing one
without the other would be a shame.

> - Sudbury (13,000; hard to get to by rail except from Colchester)
> - Sheringham (7,000; end of the line from Norwich)
> - Diss (7,000; on the Ipswich to Norwich line)
