This tranquil little Victorian coastal resort boasts 2 peculiar characteristics: it is the only coast town in Norfolk that faces west, and it has got close to one mile of strange multi-coloured cliffs, that stand close to 60 ft high. Below the cliffs the rock has fallen away in the shape of massive boulders, and beyond this is a marvelous sand beach, where element-eroded rocks are in plain view at low tide, with tons of sparkling rock pools, ideal for children to explore. These days you will find reminders the resorts' Victorian roots, including the esplanade gardens, the promenade and the large green.

New Hunstanton developed towards the end of the nineteenth century, with the coming of the train in eighteen sixty two, separate from the original settlement nowadays generally known as Old Hunstanton. The landowners at the time were the Le Strange family (Henry Styleman Le Strange) , and it was this family who were mostly accountable for the expansion of the town. Atop the distinctive cliffs you can explore the remains of St Edmund's Chapel, at the point where the King of the Angles (Edmund), is alleged to have disembarked in 850 AD. Close by you'll find a white lighthouse, which can now be rented as a holiday accommodation.

High Street, Hunstanton - - 1458719The 830 foot Hunstanton Pier opened on Easter Sunday, in eighteen seventy. In eighteen eighty two, the paddle steamer service was introduced to Skegness Pier by way of the Wash. A pavilion was added in the 1890s, but was damaged by fire in nineteen thirty nine and was never to be rebuilt. After World War 2, the pier had a roller-skating rink and a small zoo. A mini steam railway once trundled along the length of the pier, though the line was dismantled during the 1950s.

The seaward end of Hunstanton Pier in time fell into disuse though, at the shore end, an amusement building (replacing an old cafe and arcade) was put up in 1964. In the winter of nineteen seventy eight, a terrific storm wiped out much of the pier and the council removed a section at the end just a few weeks later. The land end arcade survived the storm, however, in 2002, the entire building, plus the remains of the pier, were destroyed by yet another disaster (fire this time). Nowadays, a fresh new arcade and bowling alley complex sits on the site, and despite the fact that the structure is still noted by locals as the 'Pier', there is practically nothing left of what was formerly the traditional landmark. You'll find two ramps from the promenade onto the sand, one, which is for sailing yachts, is just north of the pier, and the second, for powerboats, is at the southern end of the seafront promenade. There are powerboat and sailing clubs, and furthermore certain water-skiing championships take place here. The beach to the south of the pier is protected by groynes, these are completely under water at high tide and identifiable by baskets on high poles. The fishing is also ok in Hunstanton, with bass, flounders and dabs in regular supply. You might take a boat voyage to Seal Island, a sandy bank sitting in the middle of The Wash where you may well discover common seals basking at low tide. In fact The Wash has the largest population of common seals on the planet.

A History of Hunstanton: Hunstanton is a 19th-century seaside resort town, firstly referred to as New Hunstanton to discern it from the adjacent existing village from which it took its name. This new town has for many years eclipsed Old Hunstanton in both population and size.

The age old village of Hunstanton is now termed Old Hunstanton, most probably acquiring its name from the River Hun which flows to the coast just to the east of Old Hunstanton village. The settlement of Old Hunstanton is thought to date from prehistoric eras, with signs of a Neolithic camp being stumbled upon in close proximity in the early nineteen seventies. The long ruined St. Edmund's Chapel, was first built in the late 13th century and is currently a Grade II listed building, and is positioned at the end of the Roman Peddar's Way.

In eighteen forty six, the leading member of the affluent Le Strange family, Henry Styleman Le Strange (1815-1862), came up with the notion to build the region south of Old Hunstanton into a sea bathing resort. Henry persuaded some like minded people to finance the building of a train route from King's Lynn to the town. He assumed that the train would bring visitors and holidaymakers to the area. It became very successful (the Lynn and Hunstanton Railway became one of the more lucrative railway companies in the country). Le Strange became a director of the company but in eighteen sixty two he passed away aged only 47, and it was his son who reaped the success of his foresight.

A clue to Le Stranges forthcoming intentions took place in 1846, when he shifted the historical village cross from the old village to the projected vicinity of the new resort and in 1848 the very first structure (The Royal Hotel) was constructed. Sitting on it's own for a number of years, with views over a green and the sea, it was termed "Le Strange's Folly" by residents. The Le Strange family to be sure had the last laugh as the new resort was eventually developed and became a huge success.
