Cromer & Sheringham Through Time

Availability: In stock

Author: Michael Rouse

This is a photographic journey along the North Norfolk coast from the shingle banks at Weybourne to the crumbling cliffs at Mundesley. It's a dramatic tour that includes breathtaking cliff top walks and miles of beautiful sea-washed beaches. At the heart are Sheringham and Cromer, once small fishing villages, reinvented by powerful landowners in the nineteenth century as seaside resorts with vast Victorian hotels, now sadly mostly lost. There are West and East Runton, so popular with caravanners, to the one time millionaires' sanctuary of Overstrand. It ends at Mundesley with its reminders of former glories. It is an area rich in history of fishermen and lifeboats and man's struggle with the sea. It is a story of Victorian romance in 'Poppyland' and of holidays and heydays.
