This restful little Victorian seaside resort offers a couple of particular attributes: it's the one and only coast resort in the entire East Anglia region which looks west, and also it has got close to one mile of bizarre stripy cliffs, which stand around eighteen metres in height. Underneath the cliffs there are big boulders that have dropped from the cliff, and beyond there is a splendid sand beach, where wave-eroded rocks are revealed at low tide, with plenty of interesting rock pools, great for exploring. In these modern times there are still signs the towns' Victorian origins, including the large green, the promenade and the pretty esplanade gardens.

The new resort grew up at the end of the 19th century, with the coming of the train in 1862, south of the initial village now known as Old Hunstanton. The local landowners at this period were the Le Strange family (Henry Styleman Le Strange) , and it was that family who were mainly involved in the town's growth. On top of the cliffs you can see the historic remains of St Edmund's Chapel, at the location where the King of the Angles, is alleged to have come ashore in 850AD. Near by there is a lighthouse, which is no longer in use as a lighthouse.

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. In the 1890s a pavilion was added, but this was destroyed by fire in nineteen thirty nine and was never to be rebuilt. After World War 2, Hunstanton Pier boasted a tiny zoo and a roller skating rink. A miniature steam railway once operated along the length of the pier, although was taken apart in the fifties.

The seaward end eventually fell into disuse although, towards the land part, a 2 storey amusement building (replacing a run down arcade and cafe) was finished in nineteen sixty four. In early nineteen seventy eight, a nasty storm damaged most of the pier and a small section at the end was taken off by the town council some weeks later. The shore end amusement arcade endured, but, in 2002, the whole thing, along with the remains of the pier, were destroyed by fire. Currently, a fresh new arcade and bowling alley occupies the site, and despite the fact that the structure is still known by residents as the 'Pier', there is largely little or nothing left of what was previously the old landmark. You'll find 2 concrete boat ramps from the promenade on to the beach, one, which is for sailing yachts, is to the north of the pier, and another, for powerboats, is along the south section of the seafront promenade. There are sailing and powerboating clubs, and furthermore certain water-ski championships take place there. The south beach is defended by groynes, submerged at high tide and are identified by baskets on tall poles. The fishing is also very good here, with bass, flounders and dabs in good supply. You might think about a boat trip to Seal Island, a strip of sand in out in The Wash where you can potentially find seals basking at low tide. The fact is The Wash boasts the biggest population of common seals on the planet.

The History of Hunstanton Norfolk: Hunstanton is a Victorian seaside resort town, first of all known as New Hunstanton to distinguish it from the adjoining old settlement from which it took its name. The new town has for a long period overtaken Old Hunstanton in both population and size.

The historical settlement of Hunstanton is today identified as Old Hunstanton, quite possibly taking its name from the River Hun which flows into The Wash just to the east of Old Hunstanton village. The settlement of Old Hunstanton is understood to be of prehistoric origin, with indications of a Neolithic camp being found nearby in The early 70s. The long delapidated St. Edmund's Chapel, was first constructed in 1272 and is now a Grade II listed structure, and is placed at the end of the historic Peddar's Way.

In the eighteen forties, the leading member of the well-off Le Strange family, Henry Styleman Le Strange (1815-1862), came up with a suggestion to build the region to the south of Old Hunstanton into a sea bathing resort. Henry tempted a number of similar investors to finance the construction of a rail line from the town to King's Lynn. He knew that the train would lure in tourists and visitors to Hunstanton. It became a great success (the Lynn and Hunstanton Railway had become among the most profitable railway companies in the country). Le Strange became a director of the railway company regretably in eighteen sixty two he passed on at the age of only forty seven, and it was his son who benefitted the results of his efforts.

A clue to Le Strange's prospective intentions came about in the 1840's, when he shifted the traditional village cross from its old location to the planned area of the new site and in eighteen forty eight the initial building (The Royal Hotel) was built. Standing on it's own for several years, with views over the sea and the green, it was labeled "Le Strange's Folly" by local residents. The Le Strange family to be sure had the last laugh because the new coastal resort was ultimately constructed and became a huge success.
