This quiet Victorian coastal resort offers a couple of peculiar characteristics: it is the one and only sea side town in Norfolk that faces to the west, and additionally it boasts roughly one mile of unusual stripy cliffs, which stand roughly 60 feet tall. Below the cliffs there lie giant boulders which have tumbled from the cliff, and past this there is a lovely sand beach, where water-eroded rocks are in plain view at low tide, with numerous intriguing rock pools, excellent for children to explore. Today you will find reminders the towns' Victorian origins, including the large green, the promenade and the esplanade gardens.

New Hunstanton grew up at the end of the 19th century, with the coming of the railway in 1862, south of the existing village today identified as Old Hunstanton. The local landowners at that period were the Le Stranges , and it was the Le Strange family who were mostly involved in the growth of the town. Atop the cliffs you can view the remains of St Edmund's Chapel, at the location where Edmund, King of the East Angles, is said to have landed in AD 850. A stones throw away there is a white-painted lighthouse, built in 1966 and now used as a house.

High Street, Hunstanton - geograph.org.uk - 1458719The 830 foot long 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 eighteen nineties a pavilion was added to the pier, but was destroyed by fire in 1939 and was not rebuilt. After the Second World War, Hunstanton Pier had a little zoo and a roller skating centre. A mini steam railway at one time rattled along the length of the pier, although was disassembled during the 50's.

The seaward end of the pier later fell into disuse however, at the land section, a two-storey amusement arcade (replacing an old cafe and arcade) was built in nineteen sixty four. At beginning of 1978, a dreadful storm shattered a lot of the pier and a section at the end was removed by the town council some weeks later. The landward end amusements survived the storm, nevertheless, in 2002, the entire building, plus the old pier remnants, were destroyed by a fire. Currently, a sparkling new bowling alley and arcade occupies the site, yet whilst the building is still referred to by residents as the 'Pier', there is literally little remaining of what was formerly the traditional landmark. You'll find two concrete ramps from the promenade to the sand, one, that is for sailing vessels, is to the north of the pier, yet another, for speedboats, is towards the southerly extremity of the promenade. There are yachting and powerboating clubs, and furthermore various water-skiing tournaments take place there. The beach to the south is defended by groynes, these are covered at high tide and identifiable by baskets on tall poles. The sea fishing is also decent here, with dab, flounder and bass in regular supply. When visiting you could also think about a boat trip to Seal Island, a sandy strip in The Wash where you can potentially view seals basking at low tide. In truth The Wash has got the greatest population of common seals on the globe.

Hunstanton's History: Hunstanton is a nineteenth century coastal resort town, at first named New Hunstanton to discern it from the adjacent old community from which it took its name. This new town has for quite a while exceeded Old Hunstanton in both the number of inhabitants and size.

The traditional settlement of Hunstanton is now named Old Hunstanton, undoubtedly drawing its name from the River Hun which runs to the sea just to the east of Old Hunstanton village. The village of Old Hunstanton is understood to have prehistoric origins, with indications of a Neolithic settlement stumbled on close by in 1970. The long derelict St. Edmund's Chapel, was first erected in the thirteenth century and is currently a Grade II listed structure, it is located at the end of the historic Peddar's Way.

In eighteen forty six, the master of the rich Le Strange family, Henry Styleman Le Strange (1815-1862), chose to establish the region to the south of Old Hunstanton as a resort for sea bathing. Henry convinced some interested people to fund the building of a rail route from the town to King's Lynn. He thought that a railway line would lure in visitors and tourists to Hunstanton. It became very successful (the Lynn and Hunstanton Railway became one of the more profitable railway organizations in England). Le Strange became one of the directors of the railway company but in eighteen sixty two he passed away aged only forty seven, and it was his son who enjoyed the success of his efforts.

An indicator of Le Stranges intentions came about in 1846, when he transported the medieval village cross from the old village to the proposed spot of the new town and in 1848 a structure (The Royal Hotel) was built. Standing on its own for a number of years, with views over the sea and a green, it was labeled "Le Strange's Folly" by some. The Le Strange family without a doubt had the last laugh because the new coastal resort was finally built and became a great success.
