This quiet little Victorian coastal resort has two distinctive characteristics: it is the one and only coastal resort in East Anglia which looks to the west, and also it boasts about three-quarters of a mile of peculiar striped cliffs, which stand roughly sixty feet high. Below the cliffs large boulders lie where they have dropped, and beyond the cliffs there is a wonderful sandy beach, where at low tide wave-eroded rocks are in plain view, with a myriad of shimmering rock pools, awesome for kids to explore. These days you will find reminders of its Victorian origins, for example the promenade, the pretty esplanade gardens and the large seafront green.

The new town grew up towards the end of the 19th century, with the arrival of the railway in eighteen sixty two, south of the original community now known as Old Hunstanton. The local landowners at the period were the rich Le Strange family , and it was this family who were primarily responsible for the development of the town. On top of the distinctive cliffs are the ancient remnants of St Edmund's Chapel, at the point where the King of the Angles (Edmund), is considered to have disembarked in 850 AD. A stones throw away you'll find a white lighthouse, which was built in 1966, but no longer used as a lighthouse.

High Street, Hunstanton - geograph.org.uk - 1458719The 830 foot long Hunstanton Pier opened on Easter Sunday, in 1870. 1882 saw the introduction of the paddle steamer service over the Wash to the new Skegness Pier. In the eighteen nineties a pavilion was added, but this was ruined by a fire in nineteen thirty nine and was never to be replaced. Just after World War 2, the pier boasted a tiny zoo and a roller skating rink. A miniature steam railway at one time ran the length of the pier, but the line was withdrawn in the nineteen fifties.

The sea end subsequently fell into disuse but, at the land section, an amusement arcade (replacing a run down arcade and cafe) was opened in 1964. In January nineteen seventy eight, a storm demolished almost all of the pier and the local council took off a section at the end some weeks later. The shore end amusement arcade endured, even so, in 2002, the entire building, in addition to the old pier remnants, were destroyed by yet another disaster (fire this time). At present, a sparkling new bowling alley complex and arcade stands on the site, and although the building is still recognised by residents as the 'Pier', there is mostly little or nothing remaining of what was the historic pier. You can find 2 boat ramps from the promenade onto the sand, one, that is for sailing vessels, is to the north of the pier, and another one, for speedboats, is at the south end of the prom. There are powerboat and sailing clubs, and sometimes different waterskiing tournaments are held here. The south beach is protected by groynes, these are submerged at high tide and are identifiable by baskets on high poles. The sea fishing is also decent off the coast, with flounders, silver-eels, bass and dabs in abundant supply. When visiting you might like to consider a boat trip to Seal Island, a strip of sand found in the middle of The Wash where you may view seals basking at low tide. In fact The Wash possesses the highest population of common seals on the globe.

The Story of Hunstanton Norfolk: Hunstanton is a Victorian holiday resort town, first of all termed New Hunstanton to discern it from the neighboring traditional settlement from where ti got its name. This new town has for a long while eclipsed Old Hunstanton in both population and size.

The historical village of Hunstanton is presently named Old Hunstanton, in all probability taking its name from the River Hun which runs to the sea to the east of Old Hunstanton village. The community of Old Hunstanton is believed to date from prehistoric times, with indications of a Neolithic community being identified near by in The early 70s. The long crumbling St. Edmund's Chapel, was first built in the late thirteenth century and is now a Grade II listed structure, it is positioned at the end of the Roman Peddar's Way.

In the eighteen forties, the head of the well-off Le Strange dynasty, Henry Styleman Le Strange (1815-1862), came up with an idea to expand the region south of Old Hunstanton as a vacation resort. Henry persuaded a small grouping of interested investors to finance the construction of a railway line from King's Lynn to the town. He assumed that the railway would bring visitors and holidaymakers to Hunstanton. It became a huge success (the Lynn and Hunstanton Railway turned out to be one of the most lucrative railway businesses in England). Le Strange became one of the directors of the railway company however in 1862 he passed away aged just 47, and it was his son who benefitted the rewards of his efforts.

An indication of Le Strange's intentions came in the 1840's, when he transported the historical village cross from its old position to the proposed area of the new site and in eighteen forty eight the very first building (The Royal Hotel) was built. Standing by itself for some years, looking out over the sea and the sloping green, it was labeled "Le Strange's Folly" by some. The Le Strange family unquestionably had the last laugh since the new coastal resort was ultimately developed and became a great success.
