I have received an email from the National Trust promoting its holiday accommodation for 2019. There are several delightful properties available in North Norfolk. Hopefully when you visit any snow…
This is a pleasant walk from Morston to Weybourne on the coastal path. The going is easy but walking on the shingle section can be tiring. If the tide is out, go down the beach and walk on the hard sand.
If you are having to furnish or equip a holiday home in Cromer, Sheringham, Blakeney or another of North Norfolk’s lovely towns or villages, why not put your philanthropy hat…

This is another bumper year for seal pups at Blakeney Point. Dave Byford's excellent video provides a close-up of some of the seals and provides a view of the beautiful environment in which they live.
David North of the Norfolk Wildlife Trust has expressed his concern about the future of the wildlife habitats at Cley and Blakeney if the sea defences are not reinstated.
Doubts are arising that damage to some of North Norfolk's sea defences caused by the tidal surge in December will be repaired. The Environment Agency are seriously considering allowing the sea back in to reclaim land at Cley and Salthouse. If that does prove to be the case the economic impact on the area could be considerable. Thousands of birdwatchers travel to the reserves at Cley and Blakeney Point every year injecting a great deal of money into the local economy. If the nature of the reserves is changed by allowing the sea back in the variety of bird life will also change and the attraction of this unique part of Norfolk for keen 'birders' could wane.
A selection of the many attractions that the North Norfolk coast has to offer to visitors.
Between the late 1800's and the end of the First World War North Norfolk was a holiday playground of the very wealthy. It also attracted great artists, writers and even royalty. The appeal of the area waned after the War and it did not see a major resurgence in popularity until the 1970's. Today it is one of the most popular areas of the UK for traditional seaside holidays.
The Norfolk Wildlife Trust has received a lottery grant of £37,600 to aid with its Cley and Salthouse: A Living Coast project.
