This quiet little Victorian coastal resort boasts two distinctive features: it is the one and only coastal resort in the East Anglia region which looks to the west, and it has about three-quarters of a mile of odd striped cliffs, that stand about eighteen metres in height. Beneath the cliffs there are large boulders that have broken from the cliff, and beyond the cliffs there is a superb sand beach, where sea-eroded rocks are in plain view at low tide, with a multitude of interesting rock pools, ideal for children to explore. These days there are signs the towns' Victorian roots, such as the promenade, the pretty esplanade gardens and the large seafront green.

New Hunstanton grew up at the end of the 1800s, with the arrival of the train in 1862, south of the initial village these days identified as Old Hunstanton. The landowners at the time were the Le Strange family , and it was the Le Strange family who were chiefly involved in the town's growth. Above the distinctive cliffs you can see the historic remains of St Edmund's Chapel, at the place where the King of the Angles, is said to have come ashore in 850AD. Near by you will see a white lighthouse, which can now be rented as a holiday accommodation.

High Street, Hunstanton - geograph.org.uk - 1458719The 830 foot long Hunstanton Pier was opened on Easter Day, in 1870. 1882 saw the opening of the paddle steamer service to Skegness Pier over the Wash. A pavilion was added to the pier in the 1890s, but was eventually ruined by a fire in 1939 and was never to be replaced. Soon after WW2, Hunstanton Pier housed a little zoo and a roller skating centre. A miniature steam train once operated along the pier, but it was taken apart in the 1950s.

The sea end subsequently fell into disuse although, towards the shoreward section, an amusement building (replacing a run down arcade and cafe) was built in 1964. In the winter of 1978, a storm demolished most of the pier and a section at the end was taken off by the town council some weeks later. The land end amusements survived the storm, though, in 2002, the entire building, together with the old pier remnants, were destroyed by fire. Currently, a sparkling new arcade and bowling alley complex sits on the site, and although the building is still referenced by the community as the 'Pier', there is basically nothing remaining of what was formerly the traditional pier. One can find 2 boat ramps from the promenade to the sand, one, which is for sailing vessels, is to the north of the pier, the other, for speedboats, is at the southern extremity of the seafront promenade. There are yachting and powerboat clubs, and moreover certain waterskiing championships are held here. The south beach is guarded by groynes, underwater at high tide and identified by baskets on tall poles. The sea fishing is also decent in Hunstanton, with bass, silver-eels, flounders and dabs in regular supply. When visiting you could possibly contemplate a boat trip out to Seal Island, a sandy bank found in out in The Wash where you could possibly see seals basking at low tide. In fact The Wash boasts the highest population of common seals on earth.

Hunstanton's Historical Background: Hunstanton is a 19th-century seaside resort town, formerly named New Hunstanton to distinguish it from the neighboring original village from which it took its name. The new town has for a long time eclipsed Old Hunstanton in both populace and proportions.

The age old settlement of Hunstanton is nowadays referred to as Old Hunstanton, likely named after the River Hun which flows into the sea east of Old Hunstanton village. The village of Old Hunstanton is assumed to date from prehistoric eras, with indications of a Neolithic community being found close by in The early 70s. The long crumbling St. Edmund's Chapel, was built in 1272 and is today a Grade II listed building, it is stationed at the end of the age-old walkway Peddar's Way.

In the eighteen forties, the gentleman head of the affluent Le Strange family, Henry Styleman Le Strange (1815-1862), resolved to construct the region south of Old Hunstanton into a vacation resort. Henry persuaded a small grouping of like minded individuals to fund the construction of a railway track from King's Lynn to the town. He assumed that the train would bring visitors and tourists to the area. It was a huge success (the Lynn and Hunstanton Railway promptly became one of the most prosperous railway companies in England). Le Strange became a director of the company regrettably in 1862 he passed on at the age of just forty seven, and it was his son who gained the results of his foresight.

An indication of Le Stranges future intentions came in the 1840s, when he transported the medieval village cross from its old position to the planned vicinity of the new resort and in 1848 the very first building (The Royal Hotel) was built. Sitting in isolation for several years, looking over a sloping green and The Wash, it was labeled "Le Strange's Folly" by some. The Le Strange family nevertheless had the last laugh given that the new holiday resort was finally developed and became a huge success.
