This restful Victorian resort has two unique attributes: it's the only sea side town in East Anglia that looks to the west, and also it has a three-quarter mile length of unique multi-coloured cliffs, which stand roughly 18 metres tall. Under the cliffs sizeable boulders lie where they have tumbled, and beyond this there is a superb sandy beach, where wave-eroded rocks are exposed at low tide, with plenty of gleaming rock pools, awesome for children to explore. These days you can still find reminders the towns' Victorian origins, such as the esplanade gardens, the promenade and the large seafront green.

The new resort grew up at the end of the 19th century, subsequent to the arrival of the train in 1862, south of the original settlement presently identified as Old Hunstanton. The landowners at that time were the affluent Le Strange family , and it was this family who were essentially accountable for the town's development. Above the cliffs you can see the ancient remains of St Edmund's Chapel, at the place where the King of the Angles (Edmund), is alleged to have come ashore in 850 AD. In close proximity there is a lighthouse, which was built in 1966, but no longer used as a lighthouse.

High Street, Hunstanton - geograph.org.uk - 1458719The eight hundred and thirty foot long Hunstanton Pier opened on Easter Sunday, in 1870. In 1882, the paddle steamer services began across the Wash to the new Skegness Pier. In the eighteen nineties a pavilion was added to the pier, but this was destroyed by a fire in nineteen thirty nine and was not rebuilt. Soon after WW2, the pier housed a little zoo and a roller skating rink. A mini steam railway once ran along the pier, though the line was removed during the fifties.

The sea end soon fell into disuse however, towards the landward section, an amusement building (replacing a run down cafe and arcade) was opened in nineteen sixty four. At beginning of 1978, a storm destroyed almost all of the pier and a section at the end was taken off by the town council a few weeks later. The land end amusements endured, although, in 2002, the whole thing, as well as the remnants of the pier, were destroyed by yet another disaster (fire this time). Currently, a fresh new arcade and bowling alley stands on the site, yet despite the fact that the building is still recognised by the community as the 'Pier', there's actually little left of what was the historic landmark. There are two concrete ramps from the promenade to the beach, one, which is for sailing vessels, is north of the pier, and another, for speedboats, is along the south part of the seafront promenade. There are powerboating and sailing clubs, and moreover certain water-skiing championships are held here. To the south of the pier the beach is defended by groynes, these are covered at high tide and are identifiable by baskets on tall poles. The fishing is also very good off the coast, with bass, silver-eels, flounders and dabs in abundant supply. You could think about a boat voyage out to Seal Island, a sandy strip in The Wash where you can see common seals basking at low tide. In actual fact The Wash boasts the highest population of common seals on the globe.

Historic past of Hunstanton: Hunstanton is a Victorian vacation resort town, firstly named New Hunstanton to distinguish it from the nearby original village from where ti got its name. This new town has for quite a while eclipsed the village in both population and size.

The original settlement of Hunstanton is now named Old Hunstanton, undoubtedly drawing its name from the River Hun which flows to the sea to the east of Old Hunstanton village. The community of Old Hunstanton is thought to date from prehistoric periods, with evidence of a Neolithic community being stumbled upon near by in The early 70s. The now derelict St. Edmund's Chapel, was built in the late thirteenth century and is presently a Grade II listed structure, and is to be found at the end of the historic Peddar's Way.

In 1846, the gentleman head of the affluent Le Strange dynasty, Henry Styleman Le Strange (1815-1862), came up with an idea to develop the region south of Old Hunstanton as a seaside resort. Henry convinced a number of like-minded investors to fund the making of a train track from the town to King's Lynn. He knew that the railway would appeal to visitors and holidaymakers to Hunstanton. It turned out to be a great success (the Lynn and Hunstanton Railway developed into among the most prosperous railway companies in the country). Le Strange became one of the directors of the company but in 1862 he passed away at the age of merely forty seven, and it was his son who gained the rewards of his efforts.

An indication of Le Strange's intentions came in 1846, when he shifted the traditional village cross from its old location to the suggested vicinity of the new resort and in 1848 the initial building (The Royal Hotel) was built. Sitting in isolation for some years, looking out over the wash and a green, it was labelled "Le Strange's Folly" by local people. The Le Strange family evidently had the last laugh because the new resort was ultimately developed and became successful.
