East Rudham – Brownies Tea Rooms

I couldn’t really understand why a tea room in a quiet Norfolk village had so much pink. But we always looked to see if the umbrellas were up every time we passed through!


Cromer Pier

Cromer Pier has a simple design and is quite short, but I love the way the steps echo the waves lapping the shore.

Look carefully at the shows on offer – it also appears to be in a timewarp!

Beyond the pier is the lifeboat station. Henry Blogg was the coxswain for over 50 years and was awarded umpteen medals for bravery, having saved dozens of lives. Remember this is all funded by donation and lifeboatmen are volunteers. Incredible.

Norfolk Coastal Path

It’s unusual to find cliffs on the Norfolk coast as the land is quite flat. Along the path were plentiful wild flowers so typical of the coast and there was much evidence of cliff erosion. The beach was pebbly, so the sound of the sea could be heard well before you reached the cliffs.

This is the entrance to the Norfolk Coastal Path near Sheringham and the acorn on the gate shows it’s one of the national long distance paths. It’s not a bridleway, just for walkers.
