This quiet Victorian coastal resort has 2 peculiar attributes: it is the only seaside town in Norfolk that faces west, and also it features about three-quarters of a mile of unusual striped cliffs, which stand about 60 feet tall. Under the cliffs there lie huge boulders that have broken from the cliff, and past this there is a marvelous sandy beach, where wave-eroded rocks are in plain view at low tide, with a number of glistening rock pools, excellent for exploring. Nowadays there are signs the resorts' Victorian roots, including the large green, the promenade and the esplanade gardens.

New Hunstanton evolved at the end of the 1800s, with the coming of the railway in eighteen sixty two, to the south of the original settlement these days generally known as Old Hunstanton. The landowners at this period were the Le Strange family (Henry Styleman Le Strange) , and it was this family who were primarily to thank for the town's progress. Above the distinctive cliffs you can see the remains of St Edmund's Chapel, at the point where Edmund, King of the East Angles, is assumed to have disembarked in AD 850. A stones throw away you can see the white 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 1870. In 1882, the paddle steamer services was introduced to Skegness Pier over the Wash. In the 1890s a pavilion was added to the pier, but this was damaged by a fire in 1939 and was never to be rebuilt. Just after WW2, the pier was home to a roller-skating centre and a small zoo. A mini steam train once run the pier, although it was taken away during the 1950s.

The seaward end of Hunstanton Pier in time fell into disuse nevertheless, towards the landward section, an amusement arcade (replacing an older cafe and arcade) was opened for business in 1964. In January 1978, a storm wrecked much of the pier and the local authority took off a small section at the end a couple of weeks later. The land end amusement arcade endured, nevertheless, in 2002, the whole thing, together with the remnants of the pier, were destroyed by yet another fire. Currently, a new bowling alley complex and arcade sits on the site, but even though the building is still known locally as the 'Pier', there is essentially little remaining of what was the famous landmark. You will find 2 concrete boat ramps from the promenade on to the sand, one, that is for sailing craft, is north of the pier, and another, for speedboats, is at the south end of the promenade. There are sailing and powerboating clubs, and sometimes different water-ski competitions take place here. The beach to the south of the pier is guarded by groynes, these are covered at high tide and identified by baskets on high poles. The sea fishing is also not bad off the coast, with bass, flounders and dabs in abundant supply. When visiting you can consider a boat voyage out to Seal Island, a sand strip in the middle of The Wash where you could possibly observe seals basking at low tide. In actual fact The Wash boasts the biggest population of common seals on the planet.

Historical Past of Hunstanton: Hunstanton is a Victorian resort town, formerly named New Hunstanton to differentiate it from the nearby older settlement from where ti got its name. This new town has for a number of years eclipsed the village in both the number of habitants and size.

The previous settlement of Hunstanton is these days identified as Old Hunstanton, likely deriving its name from the River Hun which runs into The Wash east of Old Hunstanton village. The village of Old Hunstanton is assumed to be of prehistoric origin, with indicators of a Neolithic community being observed nearby in The early 70s. The long derelict St. Edmund's Chapel, was erected in the late thirteenth century and is nowadays a Grade II listed structure, it is positioned at the end of the Roman Peddar's Way.

In 1846, the gentleman head of the rich Le Strange family, Henry Styleman Le Strange (1815-1862), chose to build up the region south of Old Hunstanton into a resort for sea bathing. Le Strange tempted a number of like minded financiers to finance the construction of a train track from the town to King's Lynn. He thought that a railway line would draw visitors and tourists to the town. It turned out to be a great success (the Lynn and Hunstanton Railway turned into among the most lucrative railway companies in the country). Le Strange became a director of the company regrettably in 1862 he passed on aged just forty seven, and it was his son who reaped the rewards of his foresight.

An indication of Le Strange's future intentions took place in the 1840s, when he transferred the ancient village cross from the old village to the planned vicinity of the new site and in 1848 the very first building (The Royal Hotel) was built. Standing all alone for a number of years, with views over the wash and the green, it was labelled "Le Strange's Folly" by local residents. The Le Strange family as you can imagine had the last laugh since the new seaside resort was eventually built and became a great success.
