This quiet little Victorian coastal resort has a couple of particular features: it is the only sea side resort in the whole of East Anglia that looks to the west, and additionally it features a three-quarter mile stretch of bizarre stripy cliffs, that stand approximately eighteen metres in height. Below the cliffs there are giant boulders that have dropped from the cliff, and past this is a fine sand beach, where element-eroded rocks are revealed at low tide, with a multitude of glistening rock pools, ideal for kids to explore. In these modern times there are still reminders of its Victorian beginnings, like the esplanade gardens, the promenade and the large green.

The new town developed towards the end of the nineteenth century, with the coming of the train in eighteen sixty two, to the south of the initial village presently named Old Hunstanton. The local landowners at the time were the prosperous Le Strange family (Henry Styleman Le Strange) , and it was the Le Strange family who were mostly in charge of the growth of the town. On top of the cliffs you can explore the historic remains of St Edmund's Chapel, at the point where Edmund, King of the East Angles, is alleged to have disembarked in 850AD. Near by is a lighthouse, which was built in 1966, but no longer used as a lighthouse.

High Street, Hunstanton - geograph.org.uk - 1458719The eight hundred and thirty foot Hunstanton Pier was opened on Easter Sunday, in eighteen seventy. 1882 saw the start of the paddle steamer service across the Wash to the new Skegness Pier. In the 1890s a pavilion was added to the pier, but was subsequently damaged by a fire in nineteen thirty nine and wasn't re-built. Soon after World War II, the pier had a small zoo and a roller skating rink. A mini steam railway once ran along the length of the pier, although it was disassembled during the nineteen fifties.

The sea end of the pier eventually fell into disuse though, towards the landward part, a two-storey amusement arcade (replacing an older arcade and cafe) was built in nineteen sixty four. In the winter of 1978, a dreadful storm shattered a lot of the pier and the local council demolished a section at the end a couple of weeks later. The shore end arcade endured the storm, nevertheless, in 2002, the entire thing, plus the old pier remnants, were destroyed by yet another disaster (fire this time). At this time, a new bowling alley complex and arcade occupies the site, and whilst the building is still noted locally as the 'Pier', there is practically little or nothing left of what was formerly the famous landmark. There are actually two concrete ramps from the promenade on to the beach, one, that is for sailing craft, is to the north of the pier, and the second, for powerboats, is at the southerly section of the seafront promenade. There are sailing and powerboating clubs, and additionally certain waterskiing tournaments are held here. The beach to the south of the pier is protected by groynes, these are completely underwater at high tide and identifiable by high poles with baskets on top. The fishing is also great in Hunstanton, with dab, flounder and bass in modest supply. You can take a boat trip out to Seal Island, sandy bank located in the middle of The Wash where you could possibly discover common seals basking at low tide. In actual fact The Wash possesses the largest population of common seals on the globe.

Hunstanton's Historical Past: Hunstanton is a nineteenth century holiday resort town, at the start termed New Hunstanton to differentiate it from the neighboring existing settlement after which it was named. The new town has for quite a while surpassed Old Hunstanton in both the number of inhabitants and size.

The traditional settlement of Hunstanton is now termed Old Hunstanton, most likely acquiring its name from the River Hun which runs to the coast east of Old Hunstanton village. The community of Old Hunstanton is thought to date from prehistoric times, with signs of a Neolithic settlement being identified close by in nineteen seventy. The long ruined St. Edmund's Chapel, was first constructed in twelve seventy two and is now a Grade II listed building, it is based at the end of the historic Peddar's Way.

In 1846, the leading member of the wealthy Le Strange family, Henry Styleman Le Strange (1815-1862), made a decision to develop the area south of Old Hunstanton as a resort for saltwater bathing. He convinced a group of like-minded financiers to fund the making of a rail line from the town to King's Lynn. He suspected that the train would bring tourists and visitors to the resort. It turned out to be a huge success (the Lynn and Hunstanton Railway grew to be among the most profitable railway organizations in the country). Le Strange became a director of the company sadly in eighteen sixty two he passed on aged only forty seven, and it was his son who gained the results of his efforts.

A hint to Le Strange's intentions came about in eighteen forty six, when he transported the medieval village cross from its old location to the projected area of the new site and in eighteen forty eight the very first structure (The Royal Hotel) was erected. Sitting in isolation for a number of years, overlooking the wash and the sloping green, it was termed "Le Strange's Folly" by residents. The Le Strange family evidently had the last laugh because the new resort was finally developed and became a great success.
