I don't understand why there is an 's' after some words and not others as indicated above. I understand that this is so in the case of the genitive e.g Der Engel des Nordens, but 'Im fruehling' not 'Im fruehlings' and, as in the case above, 'Im Norden Englands' and not 'Im Norden England'.

Im Norden Englands = in the north of England; Im Norden England = in the north England (wrong); Im Jahre 1954 = in the year 1954; Im Jahres 1954 = in the of year 1954 (wrong); Im Frühling = in spring; Im Frühlings = in the of spring (wrong); But you say "Im Frühling des Jahres 1954" = in the spring of the year 1954
