West Runton has a lovely sandy beach as well as an area of rocks and pebbles. This creates an ideal enviroment for children hunting for sea urchins, crabs, fossils and other sea creatures. This is one of the few beaches on the north Norfolk coast where you can take the children rock pooling.
West Runton can put its name to the discovery of the remains of a woolly mammoth in 1990.
At last the finer weather is upon us, these fields of rapeseed have flourished with all the rain fall we have had giving a wonderful display of colour. These pictures were taken at Thurgarton, near Aldborough Norfolk.

April 2011 was one off the warmest and dryest for many years. On the 29th this year, these pictures of Cromer pier were taken as gale force winds were battering the coast. What a difference to the 29th last year when Prince William and Kate Middleton were married.
The Old Vicarage is a remarkable garden designed by it’s owners Alan Gray & Grayham Robeson. The vicarage was bought in 1973 with no garden at all, now it has been transformed into many individual gardens including exotic, mediterranean, vegetable, sunken garden, woodland gardens, borders and wild flower areas.
It is located on the Norfolk coast but is sheltered from the winds by dense hedges and planting, enabling unusual and tender plants to grow.
A lovely afernoon was spent strolling round the grounds with the family, finishing the afternoon with tea and cakes at the cafe.
