Synopsis

Michael Rouse's photographic tour of the West Norfolk coast takes us from the Victorian vision of Hunstanton - with its spectacular coloured cliffs - to the salt marshes of Stiffkey and Cley-next-the-Sea. It's a journey back in time to the small ports of Burnham Overy Staithe, Brancaster Staithe and Blakeney, now so popular with weekend sailors, and then onward to the wonderful beaches and bustling quayside of Wells-next-the-Sea.



This updated and fully revised edition of Hunstanton & Wells-next-the-Sea, with a century's worth of images, tells the story of the holiday industry and the economic fortunes of the English seaside. This is a coastline rich in history with an ever-changing shoreline but one constant theme - the dramatic, ongoing battle with the relentless North Sea.
