Beach and Clifftop

  • Walked: 7th November 2006
  • Distance: 4.8m
  • Terrain: flat, with steep slopes up to cliff and Village.
  • Summary: Park at Bacton, walk along the beach to Mundesley and back along the clifftop.
  • Time: 2 hrs
  • Notable views: All of it!
  • Note to self: investigate the Paston Way.

This is the first of two short walks taken with Mum and Dad during a week's holiday back in Norfolk visiting friends and family.

In November, these coastal villages are asleep. Some fantastic beach and sky views can be enjoyed almost alone!

Park at Bacton, walk along the beach to Mundesley. Climb the slope at the lifeboat station and into Mundesley. We enjoyed an out-of-season coffee and walked back down to the beach. At the lifeboat station climb up the slope and join the clifftop path:

Despite bits of the cliff continuously falling onto the beach, a right of way along the clifftop is maintained. The views are just fantastic, and explode the "flat Norfolk" myth!!

Ah, the bleak beauty of the North-East Norfolk coast out of season …
Thank's Peahen, for many cold and wet memories …

OK. I'm jealous much. You have great places to walk.
