This restful Victorian seaside resort offers a couple of distinctive attributes: it is the one and only sea side resort in East Anglia which faces to the west, and additionally it features about a one mile expanse of peculiar striped cliffs, which stand around sixty feet in height. Under the cliffs the rock has fallen away in the shape of large boulders, and beyond this is a tremendous sandy beach, where water-eroded rocks are on view at low tide, with a multitude of shimmering rock pools, splendid for exploring. Nowadays you can find signs the resorts' Victorian beginnings, including the esplanade gardens, the promenade and the large green.

New Hunstanton grew up at the end of the nineteenth century, with the arrival of the train in 1862, south of the initial village these days generally known as Old Hunstanton. The local landowners at the period were the Le Strange family , and it was the Le Strange family who were largely critical to the advancement of the town. Atop the distinctive cliffs you can see the remains of St Edmund's Chapel, at the area where Edmund, King of the East Angles, is stated to have landed in 850AD. A stones throw away you will see a white-painted lighthouse, which can now be rented as a holiday accommodation.

High Street, Hunstanton - geograph.org.uk - 1458719The 830 foot long Hunstanton Pier was opened on Easter Sunday, in eighteen seventy. In eighteen eighty two, the paddle steamer services launched to Skegness Pier across the Wash. In the eighteen nineties a pavilion was added, but was destroyed by a fire in nineteen thirty nine and was not rebuilt. Just after the Second World War, Hunstanton Pier included a small zoo and a roller skating centre. A mini steam train at one time ran the length of the pier, though it was dismantled during the 50s.

The seaward end of the pier in time fell into disuse although, at the land part, an amusement arcade (replacing a shabby old arcade and cafe) was finished in nineteen sixty four. At beginning of nineteen seventy eight, a storm shattered most of the pier and the council demolished a small section at the end a few weeks later. The shoreward end amusements survived the storm, even so, in 2002, the complete building, in addition to the remainder of the pier, were destroyed by yet another disaster (fire this time). At this time, a sparkling new bowling alley and arcade exists on the site, but while the building is still referred to by residents as the 'Pier', there is essentially little or nothing remaining of what was previously the famous pier. There are actually two boat ramps from the promenade to the sand, one, which is for sailing yachts, is to the north of the pier, the second, for powerboats, is at the southerly section of the promenade. There are powerboating and sailing clubs, and in addition certain waterskiing tournaments are held here. The south beach is protected by groynes, covered at high tide and marked by high poles with baskets on top. The sea fishing is also not bad in the Wash, with bass, flounders and dabs in decent supply. You might like to enjoy a boat trip to Seal Island, a sandbank standing in The Wash where you will see seals basking at low tide. Actually The Wash has the greatest population of common seals on earth.

Historic past of Hunstanton: Hunstanton is a Victorian coastal resort town, firstly known as New Hunstanton to distinguish it from the nearby old village from which it took its name. The new town has for some time exceeded Old Hunstanton in both the number of people and size.

The historical village of Hunstanton is now termed Old Hunstanton, quite likely acquiring its name from the River Hun which runs to the sea just east of Old Hunstanton village. The community of Old Hunstanton is assumed to have prehistoric origins, with evidence of a Neolithic settlement being identified nearby in the early nineteen seventies. The long ruined St. Edmund's Chapel, was erected in the late 13th century and is these days a Grade II listed structure, it is established at the end of the age-old walkway Peddar's Way.

In 1846, the head of the affluent Le Strange dynasty, Henry Styleman Le Strange (1815-1862), chose to expand the region to the south of Old Hunstanton into a seaside resort. Le Strange persuaded a number of like-minded investors to invest in the construction of a rail route from the town to King's Lynn. He thought that a railway line would lure in holidaymakers and visitors to Hunstanton. It became a huge success (the Lynn and Hunstanton Railway rapidly became one of the most successful railway businesses in England). Le Strange became a director of the company however in eighteen sixty two he died aged merely forty seven, and it was his son who reaped the success of his foresight.

An indication of Le Stranges intentions came about in 1846, when he shifted the historical village cross from its old position to the planned location of the new resort and in eighteen forty eight the initial structure (The Royal Hotel) was constructed. Standing on it's own for a number of years, looking out over the wash and the green, it was referred to as "Le Strange's Folly" by local people. The Le Strange family to be sure had the last laugh since the new vacation resort was finally developed and became a huge success.
