This peaceful little Victorian coastal resort offers 2 particular features: it's the only sea side resort in East Anglia that looks westwards, and it features about three-quarters of a mile of unusual striped cliffs, that stand roughly 18 metres in height. Below the cliffs giant boulders lie where they have fallen, and beyond this there is a superb sandy beach, where at low tide wave-eroded rocks are in plain view, with a myriad of gleaming rock pools, great for exploring. In these modern times you can still find signs the towns' Victorian origins, for example the promenade, the pretty esplanade gardens and the large green.

The new resort developed at the end of the 1800s, with the coming of the railway in eighteen sixty two, south of the initial village now termed Old Hunstanton. The landowners at the period were the well-off Le Strange family (Henry Styleman Le Strange) , and it was the Le Strange family who were primarily in control of the town's progress. Above the cliffs you will discover the ruins of St Edmund's Chapel, at the area where Edmund, King of the East Angles, is supposed to have disembarked in AD 850. A stones throw away there is a white-painted lighthouse, which was built in 1966.

High Street, Hunstanton - geograph.org.uk - 1458719The 830 foot Hunstanton Pier opened on Easter Sunday, in eighteen seventy. 1882 saw the start of the paddle steamer service to Skegness Pier by way of the Wash. The pavilion was added in the 1890s, but was damaged by a fire in 1939 and wasn't re-built. Soon after WW2, Hunstanton Pier boasted a tiny zoo and a roller skating centre. A miniature steam train at one time rattled along the length of the pier, although it was disassembled during the fifties.

The sea end later fell into disuse but, towards the landward end, a two-storey amusement arcade (replacing an older arcade and cafe) was completed in nineteen sixty four. In January 1978, a terrific storm destroyed a lot of the pier and the town council demolished a section at the end some weeks later. The shore end arcade endured the storm, even so, in 2002, the entire building, as well as the old pier remnants, were destroyed by a fire. Nowadays, a brand new arcade and bowling alley complex occupies the site, yet even though the structure is still referenced by the community as the 'Pier', there's just about little still left of what was the historic pier. For boating fans there are two ramps from the promenade to the beach, one, that is for sailing yachts, is just north of the pier, the other one, for speedboats, is at the south end of the prom. There are sailing and powerboat clubs, and furthermore different water-ski competitions take place here. The south beach is sheltered by groynes, covered at high tide and denoted by baskets on high poles. The sea fishing is also not bad off the coast, with flounders, silver-eels, bass and dabs in good supply. You might like to take a boat voyage out to Seal Island, a sand strip sitting in The Wash where you could very well find seals basking at low tide. The truth is The Wash has got the greatest population of common seals on the globe.

A History of Hunstanton Norfolk: Hunstanton is a nineteenth century resort town, at the start referred to as New Hunstanton to distinguish it from the nearby old community after which it was named. The new town has for quite a few years eclipsed the original village in both the number of inhabitants and proportions.

The historic village of Hunstanton is presently named Old Hunstanton, most certainly named after the River Hun which flows into the sea east of Old Hunstanton village. The settlement of Old Hunstanton is assumed to date from prehistoric periods, with indicators of a Neolithic community being encountered near by in The early 70's. The long ruined St. Edmund's Chapel, was erected in the thirteenth century and is currently a Grade II listed building, and is positioned at the end of the age-old Peddar's Way.

In eighteen forty six, the gentleman head of the well-off Le Strange family, Henry Styleman Le Strange (1815-1862), came up with an idea to develop the area south of Old Hunstanton into a resort for saltwater bathing. Le Strange convinced a small grouping of like-minded investors to finance the making of a rail route from King's Lynn to the town. He suspected that the railway would lure in holidaymakers and visitors to the area. It became very successful (the Lynn and Hunstanton Railway turned into one of the most lucrative railway companies in England). Le Strange became one of the directors of the company however in eighteen sixty two he passed away at the age of only forty seven, and it was his son who gained the rewards of his efforts.

A hint to Le Strange's intentions came about in 1846, when he transported the historical village cross from its old spot to the planned location of the new resort and in 1848 a structure (The Royal Hotel) was built. Sitting all alone for some years, looking over the green and the sea, it was termed "Le Strange's Folly" by residents. The Le Strange family evidently had the last laugh as the new resort was finally built and became a great success.
