This peaceful Victorian seaside resort offers a couple of peculiar attributes: it is the one and only seaside resort in Norfolk that looks westwards, and it has about three-quarters of a mile of bizarre striped cliffs, which stand roughly 18 metres in height. Beneath the cliffs massive boulders lie where they have fallen, and beyond this is a splendid sandy beach, where water-eroded rocks are in plain view at low tide, with tons of shimmering rock pools, ideal for exploring. In these modern times there are still signs the resorts' Victorian roots, such as the promenade, the large green and the attractive esplanade gardens.

New Hunstanton was developed towards the end of the 19th century, right after the coming of the railway in eighteen sixty two, south of the existing settlement these days referred to as Old Hunstanton. The local landowners at this time were the rich Le Stranges , and it was that family who were primarily to thank for the advancement of the town. On top of the distinctive cliffs you can see the ancient remains of St Edmund's Chapel, at the location where the King of the Angles, is alleged to have come ashore in 850 AD. In close proximity is a white lighthouse, which can now be rented as a holiday accommodation.

High Street, Hunstanton - geograph.org.uk - 1458719The eight hundred and thirty foot long Hunstanton Pier opened on Easter Sunday, 1870. 1882 saw the creation of the paddle steamer service over the Wash to the new Skegness Pier. In the eighteen nineties a pavilion was added, but this was damaged by a fire in 1939 and was not rebuilt. Soon after World War 2, the pier played host to a tiny zoo and a roller skating rink. A miniature steam train at one time operated along the length of the pier, although it was taken apart in the fifties.

The sea end soon fell into disuse yet, towards the shore part, a 2 storey amusement arcade (replacing a run down cafe and arcade) was opened for business in nineteen sixty four. At beginning of nineteen seventy eight, a storm destroyed most of the pier and a section at the end was removed by the council some weeks later. The landward end amusement arcade survived the storm, though, in 2002, the complete building, together with the old pier remains, were destroyed by yet another fire. Nowadays, a new bowling alley and arcade exists on the site, and although the building is still described by the community as the 'Pier', there's actually little left of what was the famous landmark. Boating addicts will find two concrete boat ramps from the promenade to the beach, one, that is for sailing craft, is north of the pier, the other one, for powerboats, is towards the southerly section of the prom. There are powerboat and sailing clubs, and also certain water-ski competitions take place here. The beach to the south of the pier is sheltered by groynes, these are under water at high tide and identifiable by baskets on high poles. The sea fishing is also not bad in Hunstanton, with dabs, bass, silver-eels and flounders in regular supply. You might enjoy a boat experience out to Seal Island, a sandbank in out in The Wash where you will be able to see seals basking at low tide. Actually The Wash boasts the highest population of common seals in the world.

The Story of Hunstanton Norfolk: Hunstanton is a Victorian coastal resort town, formerly identified as New Hunstanton to discern it from the neighbouring existing community from where ti got its name. This new town has for some time exceeded the original village in both populace and proportions.

The initial community of Hunstanton is now referred to as Old Hunstanton, quite possibly named after the River Hun which flows into The Wash east of Old Hunstanton village. The settlement of Old Hunstanton is understood to be of prehistoric origin, with signs of a Neolithic settlement being found nearby in The early 70s. The now derelict St. Edmund's Chapel, was originally constructed in the late 13th century and is nowadays a Grade II listed structure, it is stationed at the end of the Roman Peddar's Way.

In 1846, the leading member of the wealthy Le Strange dynasty, Henry Styleman Le Strange (1815-1862), resolved to cultivate the area south of Old Hunstanton into a sea bathing resort. He persuaded several interested investors to fund the making of a train track from King's Lynn to the town. He thought that the train would bring tourists and visitors to Hunstanton. It became a huge success (the Lynn and Hunstanton Railway had become 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 forty seven, and it was his son who reaped the rewards of his efforts.

An indication of Le Strange's prospective intentions came about in 1846, when he transported the medieval village cross from its old position to the suggested area of the new town and in 1848 the first structure (The Royal Hotel) was constructed. Standing all alone for some years, looking out over the sloping green and The Wash, it was labelled "Le Strange's Folly" by residents. The Le Strange family clearly had the last laugh since the new vacation resort was finally built and became a huge success.
