This tranquil little Victorian resort offers a couple of peculiar characteristics: it's the only sea side town in Norfolk that looks westwards, and it boasts about three-quarters of a mile of unusual stripy cliffs, which stand around sixty feet tall. Under the cliffs the stone has fallen away in the form of large boulders, and beyond there is a fine sand beach, where at low tide wave-eroded rocks are revealed, with numerous glistening rock pools, ideal for youngsters to explore. Nowadays you can still find reminders of its Victorian roots, such as the esplanade gardens, the promenade and the large seafront green.

New Hunstanton grew up at the end of the 1800s, with the arrival of the train in eighteen sixty two, south of the initial settlement nowadays known as Old Hunstanton. The landowners at this period were the rich Le Stranges , and it was the Le Strange family who were mostly in charge of the town's development. Atop of the cliffs you can see the historic ruins of St Edmund's Chapel, at the place where the King of the Angles (Edmund), is said to have come ashore in AD 850. A stones throw away there is a white-painted lighthouse, which is no longer in use as a lighthouse.

High Street, Hunstanton - geograph.org.uk - 1458719The eight hundred and thirty foot long Hunstanton Pier was opened on Easter Day, 1870. 1882 saw the beginning of the paddle steamer service to Skegness Pier over the Wash. The pavilion was added to the pier in the eighteen nineties, but this was ruined by fire in 1939 and was never to be restored. Soon after World War II, the pier played host to a little zoo and a roller skating rink. A mini steam train once run the length of the pier, however the line was dismantled during the fifties.

The sea end soon fell into disuse though, at the shoreward end, a 2 storey amusement building (replacing an older arcade and cafe) was opened in nineteen sixty four. At beginning of 1978, a storm destroyed most of the pier and a small section at the end was removed by the local authority some weeks later. The shoreward end arcade endured the storm, although, in 2002, the complete building, together with the remains of the pier, were destroyed by fire. Nowadays, a new arcade and bowling alley complex exists on the site, but though the building is still referred to by locals as the 'Pier', there's relatively little left of what was the historic landmark. Boating addicts will find two concrete boat ramps from the promenade on to the beach, one, which is for sailing boats, is just north of the pier, the second, for speedboats, is at the southerly end of the prom. There are sailing and powerboating clubs, and in addition different water-skiing competitions are held here. The south beach is sheltered by groynes, these are completely submerged at high tide and marked by baskets on tall poles. The sea fishing is also not bad off the coast, with bass, flounders and dabs in considerable supply. You could possibly take a boat adventure to Seal Island, strip of sand located in The Wash where you may discover seals basking at low tide. Actually The Wash possesses the largest population of common seals on earth.

The Story of Hunstanton: Hunstanton is a Victorian resort town, firstly termed New Hunstanton to differentiate it from the adjacent original village after which it was named. This new town has for a very long time eclipsed Old Hunstanton in both populace and size.

The traditional village of Hunstanton is now known as Old Hunstanton, more than likely acquiring its name from the River Hun which runs into the sea east of Old Hunstanton village. The settlement of Old Hunstanton is accepted to be of prehistoric origin, with signs of a Neolithic community stumbled on near by in The early 70's. The now ruined St. Edmund's Chapel, was constructed in the 13th century and is now a Grade II listed structure, it is established at the end of the Roman Peddar's Way.

In eighteen forty six, the head of the well-to-do Le Strange dynasty, Henry Styleman Le Strange (1815-1862), resolved to build up the region to the south of Old Hunstanton as a resort for saltwater bathing. Le Strange convinced several interested investors to fund the construction of a rail line from King's Lynn to the town. He guessed that the train would tempt tourists and visitors to the town. It became very successful (the Lynn and Hunstanton Railway developed into one of the most successful railway firms in England). Le Strange became one of the directors of the company but in eighteen sixty two he passed away aged just forty seven, and it was his son who gained the success of his vision.

A clue to Le Strange's forthcoming intentions came in eighteen forty six, when he shifted the historical village cross from the old village to the projected area of the new resort and in 1848 a building (The Royal Hotel) was built. Standing on its own for some years, looking out over the sea and the sloping green, it was labelled "Le Strange's Folly" by local residents. The Le Strange family of course had the last laugh as the new coastal resort was ultimately constructed and became a huge success.
