This tranquil Victorian seaside resort offers a couple of particular characteristics: it is the only sea side town in the region of East Anglia that faces to the west, and also it boasts a three-quarter mile expanse of bizarre striped cliffs, which stand close to 60 ft high. Beneath the cliffs giant boulders lie where they have tumbled, and beyond the cliffs there is a fine sandy beach, where at low tide wave-eroded rocks are exposed, with a myriad of glistening rock pools, ideal for children to explore. These days you will find reminders the towns' Victorian beginnings, including the large green, the promenade and the esplanade gardens.

New Hunstanton developed at the end of the nineteenth century, with the coming of the railway in 1862, separate from the original settlement nowadays known as Old Hunstanton. The local landowners at this time were the wealthy Le Strange family , and it was the Le Strange family who were largely involved in the town's progress. Atop the cliffs you can see the remains of St Edmund's Chapel, at the area where the King of the Angles, is said to have come ashore in 850 AD. In close proximity you will see a white-painted lighthouse, which is no longer in use as a lighthouse.

High Street, Hunstanton - geograph.org.uk - 1458719The 830 foot long Hunstanton Pier was opened on Easter Sunday, in 1870. In 1882, the paddle steamer service was introduced to Skegness Pier by way of the Wash. In the eighteen nineties a pavilion was added, but was damaged by fire in 1939 and wasn't replaced. After the Second World War, Hunstanton Pier boasted a tiny zoo and a roller skating centre. A mini steam train once ran along the pier, though the line was removed during the fifties.

The sea end subsequently fell into disuse but, at the land section, an amusement building (replacing an outdated cafe and arcade) was put up in nineteen sixty four. At beginning of nineteen seventy eight, a terrific storm destroyed much of the pier and a small section at the end was removed by the local authority some weeks later. The land end amusement arcade survived, nevertheless, in 2002, the entire thing, together with the old pier remains, were destroyed in a fire. Nowadays, a new arcade and bowling alley complex exists on the site, yet even though the building is still described by residents as the 'Pier', there is practically little left of what was formerly the traditional landmark. There are 2 concrete ramps from the promenade on to the sand, one, which is for sailing boats, is north of the pier, the other, for powerboats, is at the southern extremity of the promenade. There are yachting and powerboating clubs, and additionally different water-skiing tournaments are held here. The beach to the south is defended by groynes, under water at high tide and are denoted by tall poles with baskets on top. The sea fishing is also not bad off the coast, with flounders, dabs and bass in considerable supply. You are able to think about a boat voyage out to Seal Island, a sandbank sitting in The Wash where you are able to find common seals basking at low tide. In fact The Wash possesses the biggest population of common seals on the planet.

Hunstanton's Historical Background: Hunstanton is a nineteenth century resort town, in the beginning referred to as New Hunstanton to discern it from the nearby existing settlement after which it was named. This new town has for a long time outstripped the original village in both the number of people and proportions.

The initial settlement of Hunstanton is in recent times known as Old Hunstanton, most probably acquiring its name from the River Hun which flows to the sea just east of Old Hunstanton village. The village of Old Hunstanton is deemed to date from prehistoric periods, with signs of a Neolithic settlement identified near by in 1970. The long ruined St. Edmund's Chapel, was first built in the 13th century and is these days a Grade II listed structure, and is positioned at the end of the Roman Peddar's Way.

In the 1840s, the leading member of the well-to-do Le Strange dynasty, Henry Styleman Le Strange (1815-1862), resolved to establish the area south of Old Hunstanton into a seaside resort. He managed to convince a number of interested investors to fund the building of a train line from the town to King's Lynn. He was confident that the railway would lure in holidaymakers and visitors to Hunstanton. It became very successful (the Lynn and Hunstanton Railway grew to be one of the more prosperous railway businesses in England). Le Strange became a director of the railway company sadly in 1862 he passed on aged merely forty seven, and it was his son who benefitted the rewards of his vision.

A hint to Le Stranges future intentions happened in eighteen forty six, when he shifted the ancient village cross from its old location to the proposed location of the new site and in 1848 the initial building (The Royal Hotel) was erected. Standing by itself for a few years, overlooking the sea and the green, it was labeled "Le Strange's Folly" by residents. The Le Strange family clearly had the last laugh because the new resort town was finally built and became successful.
